Prospect Expressway Pump Station

The Prospect Expressway Pumping Station is an unoccupied storm water pumping station located beneath the Ocean Parkway South of Caton Ave. in Brooklyn, NY. The pumping station was built in 1959 to pump storm water from Prospect Expressway to the vicinity of the Caton Ave. intersection and has not been upgraded since it was originally built.

The scope of this assignment was to use 3D Laser Surveying and BIM to deliver a better construction product. Under this project, the existing pumping station will be completely refurbished. All pumps, electrical equipment, instrumentation and controls, and heating and ventilation equipment will be replaced. Access will be improved to allow for safe access during operation and maintenance of the station.

Project Description

EnTech performed 3D laser scanning and developed a Building Information Model for the existing condition the proposed design of the pump station. EnTech modeled the MEP, Architectural, Structural and Civil Disciplines to a 350 Level of Detail (LoD) in Revit. In addition, all 2D drawings were extracted from the model. Using BIM improved the project communication that played a key role in resolving many environmental, health, and safety (EHS) matters.
