Transforming a Brownfield, Building a New Headquarters for Hudson Valley Lighting
NEWBURGH, New York–Hudson Valley Lighting, one of the Newburgh area’s top employers, has awarded KCCM the $20 million new construction of their 150,000 square-foot headquarters and warehouse, a brownfield development project that will bring both positive economic and environmental improvements to the City of Newburgh.
This project, championed by U.S. Senator Schumer to help strengthen the area’s economy, is being built on a reclaimed landfill site, and it will first need key water and sewer infrastructure improvements. To facilitate this aspect of the project, we will work for the City of Newburgh as their representative for the site work.
The site’s preparation will include extensive concrete and pile work, and site remediation to comply with Department of Environmental Conservation regulations and the project’s Remedial Action Work Plan. Funding for the site’s remediation has come from the U.S. Economic Development Administration in the shape of a $2.9 million grant.
Our client, Hudson Valley Lighting, is, like us, committed to the growth and economic health of the Hudson Valley region. With this new headquarters they will be able to stay in the area and continue to grow their expanding business; they anticipate adding at least fifty jobs to their current 180-person workforce.
Design is underway and we expect to break ground soon after the New Year!
