INFRASTRUCTURE PROGRAM – PHASE II, PACKAGE II – FINAL STREETS
AND SIDEWALK SURFACES, STREETSCAPE ELEMENTS AND OPEN
SPACES – TOWER 2 – AWARD OF CONTRACT
It was recommended that the Board authorize the Executive Director to award Contract
WTC-324.359.02, through construction manager Tishman Construction Corporation (Tishman),
to Paul J. Scariano, Inc., the lowest bidder pursuant to a publicly advertised/low-bid process, for
the installation of final streets and sidewalk surfaces, streetscape elements and open spaces
adjacent to Tower 2, along Vesey, Greenwich, Fulton and Church Streets, as part of Phase II of
the World Trade Center (WTC) Streets, Utilities and Related Infrastructure Program (WTC
Streets Program), at an estimated cost of $5,315,706, inclusive of net cost work and an eightpercent allowance for extra work.
At its meeting of October 22, 2009, the Board authorized Phase II of the WTC Streets
Program, which includes the final design and construction of street and sidewalk surface
finishes, trees, paving, bollards and streetscape furniture, at an estimated cost of $140 million,
including the provision of expert professional architectural and engineering services by
Downtown Streetscape Partners, in an estimated amount of $5 million. Via a related action at
that meeting, the Board also authorized the retention of Tishman to provide construction
management services to support the WTC Streets Program and other projects at the WTC site.
The scope of work for Contract WTC-324.359.02 supports the areas surrounding Tower
2, including Vesey, Greenwich, Fulton and Church Streets, and includes the installation of
concrete sidewalks, granite curbing, bollards, street lights, traffic signals, concrete foundations,
asphalt surfaces, trees and streetscape furniture on Church and Vesey Streets, interim asphalt
paving on Fulton Street, as well as the installation of utilities on Fulton and Greenwich Streets.
The pre-purchase of granite curb materials to be installed under the proposed contract was
authorized previously by the Board. The pre-purchase of bollard covers to be installed was
authorized previously by the Executive Director.
Pursuant to the foregoing report, the Committee on Operations, acting for and on behalf
of the Board pursuant to delegated authority, adopted the following resolution, with
Commissioners Bauer, Moerdler, Pocino, Rechler, Samson, Schuber and Steiner voting in favor;
Commissioner Sartor recused and did not participate in the consideration of, or vote on, this
item. General Counsel confirmed that sufficient affirmative votes were cast for the action to be
taken, a quorum of the Committee being present.
