    New BFDF Building Underway

    The LRB Special Project Branch was retained by Immigration & Custom Enforcement (ICE) to initially prepare site planning/Charrette level documents for the construction of an office building to alleviate over-crowding within the ICE law department, otherwise known as Office of the Principal Legal Advisor or OPLA. The new office space required offices, cubicles, conference room and mechanical/IT rooms. Multiple building solutions were presented and evaluated over a six-month period. A stand-alone building in a vacant area adjacent to the newly constructed warehouse proved to be the most economical solution to the problem.

    Earth Day cleanup project highlights improvements in Seneca Bluffs Park in Buffalo

    Seneca Bluffs Park is located along Seneca Street in Buffalo, N.Y., and borders the Buffalo River. Since Aug. 2016, the Buffalo District’s NY/PA Construction Office has managed a project at this park, which is a staple in the surrounding community. The Seneca Bluffs Habitat Restoration Project is entering its final year of construction as the contractor is finishing invasive treatment this summer and will be planting the final shrub clusters in the fall. To date, work on the park’s lower terrace has consisted of riverbank stabilization, habitat improvements, creation of a wetland area, enhancement of the small recreation boat launch, and removal of invasive species, namely Phragmites and Japanese Knotweed.
