Dewberry to Design Brooklyn Flood Protection Systems

Dewberry has been selected to provide resilience design services for the repair of extensive flood related damage to the Brooklyn Army and Bush Terminals in Brooklyn, New York.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation project is being funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as a part of ongoing Superstorm Sandy restoration efforts.

Dewberry will provide design services to include civil, environmental, structural, geotechnical, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering; land surveying and permitting; topographic and utility surveys; landscape architecture; historic preservation; community outreach; sustainable and environmental initiatives; and hazard mitigation.

The Brooklyn Army Terminal is a 97-acre facility that has been redeveloped as a cultural venue and passenger ferry landing for waterway taxis.

Designed by Cass Gilbert, the building opened in 1919 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The terminal is located within a mapped flood zone and the new design will protect the 1,200 linear feet of waterfront from rising sea levels and flood surge.
