B&L assisted in generating a facility plan, including a checklist of general site improvement items, and design documents for lighting and electrical improvements, signage, striping plans, and minor mechanical system improvements. The County and WMNY tasked B&L with obtaining a modification of the facility’s 6 NYCRR Part 360 operation permit for the inclusion of the Ecopark services, within a two month timeframe. B&L also assisted in completing a Supplemental Operations and Maintenance Manual for the new Ecopark facility, outlining all changes associated with the new Ecopark operations which accompanied the application for the permit modification.
B&L coordinated the activities of contractors hired by both Monroe County and Waste Management. The short, five month schedule for design, receiving quotes, and completing construction was one of the biggest obstacles to be overcome during the project. The unique nature of the project itself, and the partnership between the County and WMNY, provided for an unusual division of the contracts.
