Design/Build for Mid-Suffolk Electric Yard
RCC has led the $108 million, Design/Build Mid-Suffolk Yard project since 2018. This project highlights RCC's capabilities in a variety of disciplines including electrical, building, utility, track and sitework.
Extensive electrical underground ductbank systems were created to support the construction of two new AC power and DC traction power electrical substations, yard lighting, communication and security systems. Work on the new 32,000 SF, two-story Employee Welfare Building included a 40,000 CY excavation, installation of sanitary and drainage systems, retaining walls, new service roads and walkways plus 3,000 LF of water and fire mains and new gas service lines. The existing employee facility was demolished after employees moved into the new building.
More than 14,000 LF of track was installed in 11 new storage tracks. Various utility sheds, switch tender/drill crew sheds, hazmat and material storage facilities and a new guard booth were also constructed.
The Engineer used for this Design/Build project was HNTB Corporation.
