Urban has been selected by the New York City School Construction Authority to provide design engineering consulting services in connection with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing projects at various schools throughout the five boroughs. The contract is valued at $3 million over a term of three years.
The SCA was established by the New York State Legislature in December 1988 to build new public schools and manage the design, construction, and renovation of capital projects in New York City’s more than 1,200 public school buildings, half of which were constructed prior to 1949.
Urban has been providing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for higher education, transportation, and commercial facilities for the past 40 years in New York. This experience is bolstered by a robust construction management division, and a special inspections practice that assists clients in complying with the New York City Department of Buildings’ requirements.
According to Urban’s Director of Building Systems, James A. Bilella, PE, “Our contract with the SCA expands our design engineering practice in New York City. It also provides an opportunity to enhance the learning environment for New York City students and teachers. We’re thrilled for this assignment.”
