ENERGY & ENVIRONMENTAL                                         

Yonkers’ long history of working with utility companies in the northeast includes building substations, power generation plants, gas and water distribution systems, and pumping stations; as well as rehabilitating dams, wastewater and water treatment plants.

Capabilities in water and wastewater include a strong mechanical group that self-perform process piping and equipment installation. These complement Yonkers’ strength in heavy civil and structural construction and facilitate construction of complex system upgrades, expansions and rehabilitations.

Benefits of Yonkers’ comprehensive abilities include coordinating the various processes and systems required to remain functional while rehabilitation and upgrades are performed. For example, expansion work at the New Rochelle Wastewater Treatment Plant required full bypass of existing systems for the plant to remain fully operational during construction.

Facilitating brownfield development, Yonkers has completed numerous ground improvement and site remediation projects, including closing and capping landfills and constructing leachate treatment systems.

 

RECENT PROJECT EXPERIENCE

Yonkers’ robust portfolio includes major plant upgrades including Hunts Point WWTP and New Rochelle WWTP; pumping stations for water distribution; gas main repair and replacements for ConEdison, electrical substations such as Rockview Substation, and rehabilitation of dam structures such as Sodom & Bog, Croton Falls and Cross River dams. From site remediation for the Borgata hotel in Atlantic City to a leachate treatment system for the Fresh Kills landfill, Yonkers utilizes our substantial experience and technical expertise to identify and implement cost- and schedule-effective solutions for our clients.
