East Side Access is one of the largest transportation infrastructure projects currently underway in the United States with a history that reaches back to the 1950’s when discussions were first held regarding regional transportation planning. The project encompasses work in multiple locations in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx and includes more than 11 miles of tunneling. When completed, East Side Access will serve approximately 162,000 customers a day, providing a faster and easier commute from Long Island and Queens to the east side of Manhattan in a new 8-track terminal and concourse below Grand Central Terminal.
JPCL has been retained to provide special inspections and material testing services including soil, concrete, masonry, non-destructive testing, steel welding and bolting. JPCL has been managing a crew of over a dozen inspectors providing supervision and management of daily inspection activities, reviewing daily inspection reports and uploading those reports to MTA’s server. In addition, JPCL maintains oversight of non-conforming items and ensures timely closure of NCR’s once remedial work has been completed.
