Construct a new Ferry Terminal, Patchogue, NY

Contract # 1443C2011080432

As the General Contractor, Classic Site Solutions constructed a new ferry terminal building for the National Park Service at Fire Island National Seashore in Patchogue, New York. Built in 1985, the former 1,000-square-foot ferry terminal, which Classic demolished as part of the overall project, was envisioned as a temporary structure until a recommended Patchogue Ferry Terminal and Interactive Visitor Learning Center could be funded and built. The new terminal building includes a multi-purpose room and improved restroom facilities to accommodate larger groups. The project’s sustainable design elements incorporate the use of recycled materials and a geothermal system to help reduce heating and cooling costs.

Highlights of the project include the following:
  • Demolition of the existing building and adjacent deck on site
  • Installation of timber building piles and deck piles
  • Construction of the ferry terminal building, including all related utility connections, building components, and systems
  • Installation of geothermal open loop wells and associated geothermal system
  • Construction of an exterior deck system leading to the Patchogue River as well as a dry pipe fire suppression system for the deck
  • Installation of all site utilities, including water and fire sprinkler service lines, sanitary sewer lines and pump stations, electrical service, storm water drywells, and all related excavation, bedding, piping, and backfill
  • Replacement of 150 feet of wooden bulkhead and fender piles with a new vinyl sheet pile system.
