MTA Selects ECCO III Once Again for a Schedule-Critical Design-Build Transportation Project: The Enhanced Station Initiative Program - Package #3
ECCO III Enterprises, in association with Hardesty & Hanover/Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects, was selected by the MTA/New York City Transit Authority as best-value Design-Builder to design and construct the Enhanced Station Initiative Program - Package #3 Project (Contract A-36622C).
The primary objective of New York City Transit’s Enhanced Station Initiative Design-Build Program is to build upon the NYC Subway System’s existing legacy, while establishing a consistent system-wide identity that is anchored in a clearly expressed station structure and a distinct wayfinding system. The core design principles that comprise the framework for the program include optimizing reliability and efficiency, simplifying communication, enhancing the user experience, unifying the system, highlighting the unique station characteristics and connecting the stations to the city.
ECCO III was selected for this Project as a result of a best-value selection process that incorporated demonstration of a unique and innovative technical approach, achieving a reduced project schedule, and providing a competitive cost.
The work for this package includes significant upgrades to the stations at: 163rd Street-Amsterdam Avenue, Cathedral Parkway at 110th Street, 86th Street, and 72nd Street, along Central Park West and the West Bronx. The overall contract duration of 13.5 months will consist of a design period, followed by individual bypasses (closure periods) at each station to facilitate the expedient construction work.
