Randall’s Island Training Academy – Campus Electrical Distribution Study
FDNY Task Order EA100

Cameron Engineering is providing complete Engineering/Analysis services for the existing electrical distribution system at the training academy. The scope includes a study of the existing campus-wide electrical distribution system to determine the current power consumption, the system load capacity, short circuit potential and arc flash energy. This information will be utilized to coordinate a new campus electrical service, to develop arc flash labeling (NFPA 70E requirement) and to determine if planned campus additions can be electrically accommodated.

Cameron Engineering received a Contract Performance Evaluation rating of “Excellent” for 2014 from the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services.

Nassau County Police Department – First Precinct

Baldwin, NY

Show Project Details

Construction began at the end of 2013 on a new $13 million Nassau County police First Precinct station house in Baldwin that will replace the nearly century-old current building. The three-story, 25,000-square-foot brick-faced structure will be erected on the parking lot south of the existing building on the corner of Harrison Avenue and Merrick Road before staffers move into the new station house and the old one is demolished. The work is expected to take 18 months and be completed in 2015.

Full MEP design will be incorporated including security and communication systems. The Access Control System would include a complete card access system utilizing proximity card readers. The site security coverage would include interior vital area and exterior parking lot video surveillance cameras to provide monitoring and recording capability.

The need to rebuild the station house was called into question when the police department consolidated its eight precincts into four last year. But, police later reversed course and opted against merging the First and Seventh Precincts—the last two to be consolidated—after Superstorm Sandy last year.

The new station house will also be built to the Silver standard in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) by the U.S. Green Building Certification System.

New Fair Harbor Firehouse

Fair Harbor, NY

Show Project Details

Cameron Engineering & Associates, LLP provided the structural engineering design for the project which included the conversion of an existing firehouse to a new approximate 7,500 square foot, 2-story firehouse. Cameron Engineering replaced the existing roof and attic over the front meeting room section of building with a full cathedral dormered roof and partial mezzanine roof structure made with structural steel frames and light gage steel infill framing. The structure of the mezzanine included structural steel girders and light gage steel framing.

The loads of the new roof and mezzanine section were supported on isolated column footings and helical piles. The center garage section of the building, along the utility path, contains a two-story addition, which will include removing the existing exterior wall. The lateral load resisting system for the two-story addition was provided by reinforced concrete block walls.

The new foundations consist of concrete grade-beams supported on jetted timber piles. A one-story addition was made at the rear of the center garage section along the Pine Walk. The structure is located in FEMA-AE flood zone. The new construction was designed to meet the current flood regulations.
