A group of Ophthalmologists acquired land in Latham – a Hamlet in Albany County, to build a new surgery center. They acquired 2.25 acres of property at 207 Troy-Schenectady Road in the Town of Colonie to build a state of the art surgery center.
This project involved the phased construction of a 12,000 square foot surgery center and appurtenant parking for 70 vehicles.
Geotechnical reports determined the undeveloped site contained unconsolidated fill which was unsuitable for structural foundation construction. The building pad needed to be excavated and replaced with clean structural fill. The stormwater design incorporated detaining the water in 7 ft diameter pipes that discharge into a large green infrastructure practice known as bio-retention to treat stormwater runoff before discharging into a nearby wetland and tributary to the Dry River.
In 2015, Surgery Center Services of America began the site plan approval process by integrating our staff, Hyman Hayes Architects and Surgery Center Services in-house Design & Construction Team. The Teams were separated by over 2,000 miles; cutting edge design and communication tools were employed to streamline multi-discipline coordination to meet the challenging construction schedule.
In September 2016, the Town of Colonie Planning Board granted final project approval and negative declaration pursuant to the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). The project went to bid concurrent with design and construction commenced in the fall of 2016. The project leveraged many of services that Verity Engineering offers spanning from land acquisition due diligence through Construction Services.
