Buffalo Outer Harbor Access and Activation Civic Improvement Project Park Design

By January 27, 2021No Comments2 min read

Encorus provided mechanical and electrical engineering support for the design of a park area at the Buffalo Outer Harbor that includes a waterfront area, nature trails, a plaza, event lawn, and bike track. The park area was formerly an industrial area with legacy utilities and soil contamination.

Encorus developed a modular electrical design allowing for the owner to phase the addition of services as budget and public programming dictate.  Site electrical and lighting service was designated as core requirements or additional services to be added as appropriate.  Encorus worked in harmony with various third-party designers to ensure that structural, environmental, architectural, and landscape elements were properly coordinated into the design.

Encorus developed a plumbing design which took advantage of legacy utilities at the site, maximizing the effectiveness of the owner’s limited budget and allowing for the inclusion of all services desired.  Coordination with third party designers was undertaken to ensure a cohesive design.

The bike park is already up and running, and the rest of the project is set to begin construction in 2021. You can go check out the new bike trail along the Buffalo waterfront, which was constructed in 2019. Take your bike for a ride and enjoy the views!
