FDNY Randall’s Island Water Reclamation Project

2018 ACEC NY Engineering Excellence – Platinum

The Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) Fire Academy Water Reclamation Project was a joint funded endeavor, initiated by FDNY and primarily funded by NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).  The DEP funded this project in support of PlaNYC Green Initiative 2030, the “Water of the Future” initiative and, the NYC Water Efficiency Program.  All of which with the goal of reducing NYC water demand and water waste. Cameron Engineering was retained to design a water reclamation system to significantly reduce the quantity of water consumed for Fire Academy training and testing operations. The water reclamation tank system is a one-of-a-kind water recycling solution.  Our solution allows the FDNY Chauffer School to train seven of their eight primary training drills and an accurate means for calibrating their apparatus pressure and flow detectors/ meters.

We anticipate the water reclamation system will save approximately 22 million gallons of water per year averaging a savings of $310,000 per year with a simple payback of 6 years. We also anticipate the Fire Academy training and equipment testing to increase as the Fire Academy instructors pioneer new ways of utilizing the system for training drills and testing operations. Since we met the design goal of developing a system which consistently recycles water for training and testing operations, this project can forthrightly be defined as sustainable.

Clean & Green Biosolids Processing Facility

2018 ACEC NY Engineering Excellence – Platinum

The Clean & Green thermal biosolids facility is a privately developed, owned and operated facility processing of dewatered sludge (biosolids) from municipal wastewater treatment plants. This innovative facility reduces negative environmental impacts associated with the long haul off-Island trucking and disposal of these residuals from wastewater treatment plants while manufacturing an EPA Class A Biosolids product suitable for the beneficial reuse.

Cameron Engineering assisted Clear Flo in the planning, design, permitting, construction inspection and SEQRA process with local and State agencies.

Clean & Green used the expertise of FEECO the manufacturer of the rotary kiln.  FEECO was instrumental in the pilot testing of the greasy waste, design of full scale kiln and retrofit to eliminate condensate.

The use of greasy wastes (Fats, Oil and Greases) as a fuel source, applications of equipment from cement industry for pumping of sludge and control of dust, and a zero discharge of high strength condensate are innovated approaches to managing biosolids.

Solving the challenge of the condensate and its high organic strength and accompanying odors is an unqualified success.  Planning, designing, financing and constructing the facility on a completely private basis is quite an accomplishment.  Operating a biosolids facility without creating any nuisance conditions in local community is laudable.

Columbia University Rocco B. Commisso Soccer Stadium

2018 ACEC NY Engineering Excellence – Gold

Columbia University commissioned the development of a Seasonal Air Supported Structure (SASS) to cover reconstructed Soccer Field between the months of November and March. The project included site, civil, design and reconstruction of an NCAA certified synthetic turf soccer field, installation of the SASS for use during the cold weather season.  This innovative SASS allows athletes to train during the winter months and is deflated and removed during the regular soccer season.

Cameron Engineering’s role as a sub consultant included; Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Document Phase services for: Design of the Synthetic Turf soccer field and design of Utilities coordination drawings including natural gas, electrical and irrigation water routing systems layout. Addition services included design of Civil Engineering systems including storm water collection, detention and conveyance systems, and design of Structural foundations for the SASS, Mechanical Equipment pad and scoreboard foundations. Cameron Engineering also provided design details to the NYC MTA for influences on the existing elevated subway east of the site.

The project successfully addressed complex integrated systems of structural foundations, tie down systems, storm water collection, detention conveyance systems. Included complex utility corridor design and detailing of routing in very tight proximity to existing foundations, retaining structures and sports fields.  The provided construction administration services during the entire project.

NYSERDA Clean Energy Communities

2018 ACEC NY Engineering Excellence – Gold

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority Clean Energy Communities Program (CECP) provides funding, technical support, and recognition to local governments that demonstrate leadership in clean energy. Cameron Engineering is responsible for the CECP for Long Island, overseeing two subconsultants and leading a team of coordinators working directly with municipalities to implement energy saving initiatives and achieve CEC designation.

Cameron Engineering promoted ten High Impact Actions (Benchmarking, Clean Energy Upgrades, LED Street Lights, Solarize Campaigns, Unified Solar Permit, Energy Code Enforcement Training, Climate Smart Communities Certification, Clean Fleets, Property Assessed Clean Energy Financing, and Community Choice Aggregation) throughout Long Island with twenty communities achieving CEC designation for completing at least four of the actions.  The Firm completed Phase 1 of the CECP (eighteen designated communities) in year one of a 3-5-year project while coming in 52% under budget.

Cameron Engineering’s role in Phase 1 of the CECP was budgeted to be $558,392.94 (including a 25% match by the firm) and actual invoicing to NYSERDA was $269,392.94, significantly under budget.  The Long Island region was the first in the State to reach eighteen designated communities and to allot all available grants.   Currently, we have completed Phase 1 of the CECP in year one of the 3-5-year program and continue to work with the client to evolve the program to keep the forward momentum in Phase 2.
