Show Project Details

A feasibility study was conducted to evaluate the 13 kV site electrical distribution system at the Riverhead, Brentwood and Selden campuses. A manhole by manhole field survey of the existing electrical utilities was provided. The Report included evaluation of existing conditions and recommendations on the upgrades required. Design included replacement of existing site emergency generators and transformer. New emergency generators included natural gas fired and diesel generators with base mounted fuel tanks. Design also included the replacement of the existing 13.8kV primary feeder distribution including the selector switches. Upgrades to the building systems included a new UPS system.

Adelphi University Campus Utility Plan and Capacity Study

Garden City, NY

Show Project Details

Adelphi University located in Garden City, New York, engaged Cameron Engineering to evaluate the campus underground utilities to determine if there is adequate capacity for future expansion. The University requested updated utility maps to be created based on field surveys and existing documentation. The capacity study will be based on the Adelphi University Facilities Master Plan, prepared by their Architect. The Engineering Report that was provided included specific details on the recommendations with associated construction budget estimate.

Campus Utility Mapping Services Overview

  • Created a new comprehensive set of campus utility maps based on existing drawings and documentation.
  • Utilities mapped included, water, sewer, electric, natural gas, central heating plant, telephone, and fiber optics.
  • Storm drainage and drywell locations were included.
  • Field verification of select utilities and elevations on existing drawings were verified at 50 points across campus.

Campus Utility Capacity Study

  • The Facilities Master Plan outlines construction on the campus. Based on this information, a complete study of existing utility infrastructure was undertaken. This study assessed the capacity for these additional buildings.
  • Cameron Engineering provided a report with the findings and suggested recommendations for adding capacity if necessary.
  • Provided a schematic plan for utility relocations relating to Phase I of the master plan.

Traffic and Highway Design at North Service Road, LIE

Syosset, NY

Show Project Details

Cameron Engineering provided traffic and highway design services for the reconstruction and widening of Miller Place (Interstate 495 North Service Road) at Robbins Lane and at Route 106/107 and the interchange of Northern State Parkway at South Oyster Bay Road in Syosset, NY. The project included the relocation and reconstruction of the Exit 43A highway ramp, elimination of a ramp and the reconfiguration of another ramp on Northern State Parkway, the relocation of a portion of the existing sound wall, relocation of utilities, traffic separation median design, Maintenance and Protection of Traffic plans and introduction of regional shopping mall ingress and egress. The design effort included the modification of five (5) Nassau County DPW traffic signals, one (1) new NYSDOT traffic signal, and two (2) new NCDPW traffic signals and the interconnection of the five (5) traffic signals with Railroad Preemption. Traffic simulation modeling was performed using Synchro for a large complex network of intersections. Drainage improvements, street lighting, landscaping and pedestrian accommodation were a part of the design effort.

Maple Avenue Phase I and Phase II Improvements

Rockville Centre, NY

Show Project Details

The Village of Rockville Centre was the recipient of a $1,300,000 grant to implement utility and roadway improvements. The improvements included the upgrade of electric, water and drainage systems. The electric improvements were to provide a new twelve cable conduit and required manholes and tie-ins to existing. The existing water main in Maple Avenue was considered adequate, and the improvement included new tee connections with stubs at cross streets for future service upgrades. The Village storm water collection system for Maple Avenue was not functioning properly and needed to be upgraded. Maple Avenue was replaced with a full depth pavement restoration and streetscape beautification improvements (replacement of concrete sidewalks, street lighting, furnishings, pattern concrete crosswalks, etc.) in areas designated by the Village along Maple Avenue between North Long Beach Road and North Park Avenue.

The project was divided into two parts: NYSDOT work formatted to NYSDOT specifications per the Locally Administered Federal Aid Projects (PLAFAP) Manual, which included final Plans, Specifications, and Estimate (PS&E) approval before public bidding could commence; and non-NYSDOT work formatted to Village of Rockville Centre and/or Nassau County design standards and specifications. Cameron Engineering assisted the Village with PLAFAP compliance, and prepared a Design Report to retain the project’s eligibility for funding reimbursement.

Cameron Engineering prepared conceptual plans and estimates, and coordinated design work with local utility companies. We prepared necessary details and notes for Phase II Stormwater regulations, and prepared special specifications for pavement cores and soil sampling to ascertain existing pavement thickness and subsurface conditions. We solicited bids from three contractors and administered/oversaw the soil sampling/pavement coring operations.

We divided the Contract Documents into two packages (NYSDOT/ PLAFAP and non-NYSDOT).

For the NYSDOT work, Cameron Engineering prepared, processed, and coordinated the Moderate Projects Design Report with NYSDOT for this NEPA Class II project. We prepared PS&E package in accordance with the PLAFAP Manual, formatted to NYSDOT standard specifications, using Village template “front end” specifications.

For the non-NYSDOT work, we prepared design plans per Village and/or NCDPW standards and specifications, with an engineer’s cost estimate and Village front end specs.
