Harmon Shop Replacement - Phase V Design-Build Project Award
ECCO III Enterprises, Inc. along with our partner Skanska USA Civil Northeast has been selected by Metro-North Railroad as the design-builder for the Harmon Shop Replacement Phase V – Stage I Project. The team has a seasoned history of working together on the Harmon site, having completed the Phase III and Wheel Truing Facility design build projects as a design-build team.
ECCO III, as a primary contractor, has also completed a handful of projects on the Harmon site including the Harmon Station Improvements project (2001), the Phase I Maintenance Facility & Employee Overpass project (2003), the Croton Harmon & Peekskill Station Improvements project (2012) and the Phase IV Harmon Facilities and Yard Improvements project (2013). ECCO III has completed 20 projects for Metro-North in the last 20 years.
Valued between $200-300 million, the Harmon Shop Replacement Phase V – Stage I Project will replace a portion of the current Harmon Main Shop (Building 6) with a new state of the art Consist Shop Facility. The work will include a retrofit of Building 6, demolition of the Blowshed Building, demolition of the existing Recycling Center Facility and finally, bifurcation and partial demolition of Building 6. The Design-Build team will design and construct the Consist Shop Facility with provision for connection to the future Stage 2 contract for the Running Repair and Support Shop Facility. This project will also entail the design and construction the new EMU Annex Building.
Design activity began at the start of the year, with a focused priority on early construction activities. The team will break ground in April, and substantial completion is expected in December of 2017.
