U.S. Coast Guard Boat Maintenance Facility
Eaton's Neck, New York, USA
Boat maintenance is a perpetual activity for the U.S. Coast Guard. When fire destroyed a key boat maintenance facility, operations were in full swing and needed to stay up to speed. Haskell was challenged with the task of blending the replacement facility with the eighty-year-old historically significant Station Headquarters and creating a structure that could withstand the harsh winters and destructive seaside environment.
Construction safely and quickly proceeded on the 10,000-square foot maintenance facility and new boat ramp alongside ongoing operations and despite noise and activity limits due to endangered bird nesting. Haskell successfully navigated regulations in place to protect the species without disrupting the construction timeline.
The successful project was a partnership from day one. We prepared several long-lead pricing packages to expedite construction. The facility fully complied with State Historic Preservation guidelines and has won their praises for its design. The avian nesting season continued without interruption, as did busy Coast Guard operations.
