Hirani provided structural engineering services to evaluate and design structural measures to floodproof existing pump stations which included Felix Ct., Fox Rd., Northern Blvd. & Grand Ave. Numerous sanitary sewer pump stations were flooded during Superstorm Sandy in October 2012 rendering many inoperable. This Project involved flood-proofing the at-risk pump stations and mitigating potential damage from future storm events. This contract included four (4) pump stations located in Baldwin, NY.
Hirani provided land surveying, verification of as-built structural conditions and structural design services as a member of the Greeley Hansen design team. The main focus of Hirani’s services included structural engineering to analyze the existing structure’s ability to withstand a 500-year storm event and flood, and working with the project Architect to design the necessary floodproofing components. Hirani also analyzed the existing structure for buoyancy and analyzed and designed hold down straps for an existing underground storage tank.
