One of the many spaces within Soundview Park

While with a previous firm, Mr. Schaffer was the Senior Project Engineer for the civil engineering associated with the reconstruction of this 212-acre NYCDPR public park located along the Bronx River in the Bronx, New York.  The park was identified as an underutilized park and is being improved in accordance with the goals of PlaNYC.  Mr. Schaffer oversaw the due diligence phase of the project which entails gathering all utility information and mapping that is available from NYCDEP, Con Edison, Empire City Subway as well as the Borough Engineer’s office.  He directed the design effort for the on-site stormwater management system, site plans, grading and drainage plans as well as coordination with the Architect and Landscape Architect.
