Deep Dive: New York Mills Emergency Project
Bus Garage Emergency Project to connect sanitary line to Bus Garage Building that was discovered to have never been installed when the building was built.
During construction of the current Capital Improvements Project it was discovered that the Sanitary Connection from the Bus Garage building was never completed and connect to the local utility. This situation represented a significant health and safety concern for the District. Further investigation revealed an ancient trap installation that had deteriorated completely.
The Superintendent and Board of Education immediately declared this an emergency situation and requested Teitsch-Kent-Fay Architects, P.C. coordinate with NYSED to have this resolved.
Working closely with NYSED we were able to get a quick turnaround of the proposed design, and arrange for a contractor to perform the work. The solution involved the installation of a new “forced-main” line to connect the building to the adjacent municipal sanitary system.
While not the most aesthetically pleasing project, Teitsch-Kent-Fay Architects, P.C. and our team take great pride in being able to respond quickly and efficiently to protect our client’s interests and occupant’s.
