28 Oct WTC Transportation Hub
World Trade Center Transportation Hub
PACOTECH™, as a subconsultant to the Downtown Design Partnership, provided cost estimating services for the final design of the 800,000 square foot World Trade Center (WTC) Transportation Hub, the third largest transportation center in New York City.
The estimates were fully developed and based on the necessary labor, material, and equipment requirements. The estimates reflected the sequence of construction and included labor adjustment factors, such as confined space work, limited construction access, overtime, an assessment of the general conditions, and contingency.
Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the WTC Transportation Hub is composed of a train station with a large and open mezzanine under the National September 11 Memorial plaza. This mezzanine is connected to an above-ground head house structure called the Oculus—located between 2 World Trade Center and 3 World Trade Center—as well as to public concourses under the various towers in the World Trade Center complex.
The WTC Transportation Hub provides passenger connections from the PATH to the New York City Subway system, incorporating a passageway that connects to the various subway lines in Lower Manhattan through the Fulton Center. Significant portions of the new Hub will be devoted to the 365,000 square foot Westfield World Trade Center mall.
