Many of Judlau’s most impressive accomplishments have involved mass transit projects in heavily trafficked areas of New York City.
From intricate signal work to track work and new construction, structural rehabilitation to new exits and overpasses, the company can point with pride to an impressive array of diverse transit-related assignments.
On New York’s extensive subway and rail systems, Judlau has performed critical work on subway lines, shuttle stations, ventilation plants, and pumping stations. The wide –ranging expertise of the Judlau team has touched everything from major station rehabilitation to state-of-the art communication rooms.
One of Judlau’s signature projects was the South Ferry Terminal Finishes Project, which represented a milestone for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and subway riders. It was the first new subway station built in New York in almost 20 years. The President of MTA Capital Construction, Dr. Michael Horodniceanu, described it as “our first 21st century station” with new innovations, including a fan plant within the battery fan plant which can function independently and an integrated HVAC system, and modern finishes consisting of 2,500 sq. feet of glass, 300 sq. feet of mosaic, and an art fence and historical wall constructed from 400 sq. feet of stainless steel.
In September 2009, Judlau Contracting received a “Best of 2009″ award from New York Construction magazine for the South Ferry Terminal Project, which was named Project of the Year in the Transportation category.
More recently, in New York City’s Columbus Circle area, where six subway lines converge, Judlau recently completed an $ 81 million rehabilitation of the busy subway station. Judlau constructed a new subway entrance and stairway, station chambers, along with masonry, ceiling work, tiling and track platform edge reconstruction. The company also played a key role in the sizeable Columbus Avenue reconstruction from 59th to 85th Street. This large project had a contract duration of 26 months, but by utilizing new and innovative construction techniques ,the job was completed in only 14 months.
The largest completed project in Judlau’s history is the $ 210 million White Plains Road Line project, which consisted of the rehabilitation of five miles of elevated railway structures and the complete of overhaul of 10 stations. In addition, a much-needed new station was constructed at Gun Hill Road.
In September 2009, the White Plains Road Line Project received an Award of Merit in the Mass Transit category from New York Construction magazine.
As demonstrated above, Judlau has garnered praise on key projects that demanded superior construction, architectural expertise and on-time performance. We look forward to bringing this extensive experience to new projects in key markets throughout the U.S.
