The following significant projects have benefitted from Triumph Construction’s expertise and adherence to quality standards and innovation:
Reconstruction of 9th Avenue/Gansevoort Street Area
In the fashionable Meatpacking District section of Manhattan, Triumph Construction completed a highly ambitious NYC DDC reconstruction project that included 9th Avenue/Gansevoort Street area. In addition to replacement of distribution water mains (sections) and construction of catch basins and chute connections, roadways, curbs and sidewalks, the beautification aspect of the project involved tree planting, plaza reconstruction and decorative paving. Thanks to Triumph Construction’s work for the DDC, this bustling neighborhood near the High Line, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Chelsea Market now has one of Manhattan’s most attractive outdoor gathering areas for the people who live, work and visit here — including upwards of 30 trees and 2,600 shrubs and perennials across large garden-like planters.
LinkNYC and LinkNWK Installations
Triumph Construction has played a major role in the installation of LinkNYC, the largest and fastest free public Wi-Fi network in the world. In addition to LinkNYC kiosk installations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, Triumph is also engaged in the installation of LinkNWK in Newark, NJ. Each state-of-the-art kiosk, called Link, offers free high-speed Wi-Fi along with phone calls to anywhere in the U.S., a touch screen tablet for maps and city services, device charging, and a 911 Emergency Call button. One of the original LinkNYC contractors, Triumph’s high rate of success on installations has been recognized by the owner (Intersection/CityBridge), resulting in Triumph installing close to 1,000 kiosks, including excavation work in the surrounding roadways and sidewalks.
NYC’s Comprehensive Plan for Coney Island
New York City’s Comprehensive Plan for Coney Island is a major NYCEDC project that will improve the sewer and water infrastructure in Coney Island. Retained by project manager HAKS Engineers, Architects, and Land Surveyors, P.C., Triumph Construction is engaged in and supporting the construction of storm and sanitary sewers, water mains, and street reconstruction, ranging from roadways, sidewalks, and streetscapes to street lighting, traffic signals, and appurtenances. As part of the infrastructure project, Triumph Construction is also making on-site grade change/access modifications along the northern frontage of MCU Park, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones.
Queens Plaza Pedestrian and Bicycle Path
One of the largest beautification projects in Queens, the project included the installation of water mains, sewer mains, and sidewalk and street redesign and replacement. Electrical work consisted of all new street and traffic lights as well as LED bench lighting, LED tree uplights, and bridge deck lighting. Landscaping consisted of installation of new trees, shrubs, topsoil and new seeding of grass as well as tree removals, pruning, installation of “NO-GO” median, granite pavers, precast pavers, and artist pavers. Construction of Dutch Kills Green consisted of over 50 custom artist benches, a steel grate pedestrian bridge, decorative tables and chairs, concrete seat walls and terraces, and a 5,000-SF newly-created wetlands area under the pedestrian bridge.
Jackson Avenue Streetscapes
Another major beautification project in Queens, Jackson Avenue Streetscapes included sidewalk redesign and replacement as well as removal and replacement of prototype street lighting poles and traffic lighting work. In addition to extensive landscaping, construction included several parks consisting of benches, decorative tables and chairs, concrete seat wall and decorative concrete domes. Triumph was also engaged for utility work, road reconstruction, granite and asphalt paving, installation of permeable pavers, and construction of a concrete center median of approximately 800’ length, 8’ wide.
Green Infrastructure Implementation
In recent years, as part of its nationally recognized Green Infrastructure Program, New York City has begun building specially designed curbside gardens in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens. Also called bioswales, these curbside gardens collect and absorb storm water, improve air quality, and beautify neighborhoods. Triumph Construction has installed over 200 bioswales in Brooklyn alone and looks forward to lending its green infrastructure expertise to future projects.
Brooklyn Navy Yard Redevelopment
Triumph Construction has played an important role in the redevelopment of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, helping to pave the way for new tenants through sewer, water main, and street lighting work; loading dock replacement; steel faced curb, concrete sidewalk, permeable pavers, permeable asphalt, milling and asphalt paving; comprehensive landscaping; and the renovation of Building #6.
Bed-Stuy Gateway Streetscape Enhancement Project
The Bed-Stuy Gateway Streetscape Enhancement Project is transforming Central Brooklyn’s anchor business destination into a more attractive urban space. Triumph Construction is actively involved in the project’s success through sewer and water main work; granite/steel-faced curb and seating; and concrete sidewalk, pavers, and asphalt restoration.
Reconstruction of Pershing Square West
Beginning in the late 1980s, plans were discussed to turn Pershing Square into a landscaped pedestrian plaza. Today that project is well underway with Triumph Construction an active participant in the reconstruction work, including the installation of new trunk and distribution water mains along E. 42nd Street and Park Avenue. The pedestrian plaza will benefit from Triumph’s involvement with the installation of granite seat walls, bronze elements, planting areas, benches, a fountain, and new concrete and asphalt block pavers.
Reconstruction of Astor Place/Cooper Square
The new Alamo Plaza in the East Village is a community enhancement project that created two new pedestrian plazas and expanded and renovated two others, bringing 42,000 square feet of new pedestrian space to the neighborhood. With Triumph Construction serving as contractor, the project also introduced larger sidewalks; 16,000-square-feet of planting areas with new trees and automated in-ground irrigation systems; 6,700-square-feet of permeable pavement and 2,100-square-feet of new curbside rain gardens for improved drainage and storm-water management; over 100 new bike racks; and a $180,000 renovation of The Alamo, the popular cube-shaped sculpture best known for its ability to spin on its axis.
