NV5 Global, Inc., a provider of professional and technical engineering and consulting solutions based in Hollywood, FL, has announced that it was awarded two term agreements by the New York School Construction Authority (SCA) and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (NYCDPR) for landscape architecture services. The contracts were won by the landscape architecture team at RBA/NV5.
RBA/NV5 has been providing services to the SCA since 2008, including for playgrounds, athletic facilities, recreational spaces, and for other school improvements such as pavement, parking lot and drainage improvements. RBA/NV5 will be managing similar renovation and expansion projects at educational facilities throughout all Five Boroughs of New York as part of the most recent $2 million contract for professional consulting fees over three years.
The company has also been awarded a $6 million contract by NYCDPR to prepare construction documents as needed for the construction or reconstruction of various parks and playgrounds in New York City’s five boroughs over three years. The company has been working with NYCDPR since 2002 and has completed more than 26 individual assignments during that time.
“In recent years we have observed an increase in funding for public facilities in the greater New York City area, including parks and other recreational areas,” NV5 chairman Dickerson Wright said in a statement. “Our talented landscape architecture group has identified new ways to serve their clients through NV5’s diversified service platform, especially through synergies with our Infrastructure team.”
Jackson Wandres, NV5’s director of landscape architecture and project manager for both assignments, added: “NV5 has demonstrated an unmatched capability to serve our landscape architecture clients by also offering them civil engineering and architectural design services when needed through our multidisciplinary practice. For example, architectural contracts awarded by the SCA in the past have also included design of building envelope repairs — windows, doors, and roofs — classroom and bathroom renovations, and ADA access upgrades.”
