Town of Colonie, New York

2014 Transportation Project of the Year (under $5 million category) from the Platinum Award for Engineering Excellence from the American Public Works Association Capital District Branch  

Albany civil engineering firm C.T. Male Associates completed design, bidding support, and construction phase services on a roadway and utility reconstruction project.  The aforementioned civil engineering project, the Sand Creek Road Reconstruction, involves the full-depth reconstruction of approximately 4,000 linear feet of Sand Creek Road, a busy arterial road through a densely populated neighborhood in Colonie, located just a few minutes from the C.T. Male Associates Headquarters in Latham NY.

The project includes a widening of the paved surface to accommodate a center turning lane, the addition of a porous concrete sidewalk, the addition of concrete curbing to both sides of the roadway and the replacement of traffic signals at two intersections. In addition to the reconstruction of the roadway corridor, the project includes the replacement of water and sanitary sewer mains, the construction of new stormwater catch basins and drainage lines, and the relocation of a gas line.

During the design process, C.T. Male Associates conducted a public presentation intended to introduce the project to neighboring residents.  C.T. Male Associates also assisted with the permitting of the project, which included reviews by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the Albany County Department of Health.

C.T. Male Associates prepared construction plans and specifications and supported the client throughout the public bidding process.  This included the preparation of a construction cost estimate, which accurately predicted the final bid price.  C.T. Male Associates reviewed and tabulated the bids received, and followed up on references provided by the low bidder, before providing a recommendation of award to the Town. During construction, C.T. Male Associates will be providing full-time observation at the site, as well as reviewing contractor submittals.

C.T. Male Associates is extremely proud and honored to report that this project was recently announced as the APWA Capital District Branch – 2014 Transportation Project of the Year for the Under $5 Million Category.
