Sidney B. Bowne & Son’s successes in 2016 include the completion of the design phase of the Garvies Point Waterfront Redevelopment and the Greybarn Amityville projects (Phases I and II). In our Water Resources Department, we finalized the design of a new $6.5 million state-of-the-art treatment facility for the Carle Place Water District. We take pride in these accomplishments, including the years-long efforts on the part of our engineers, surveyors and other staff members to bring these jobs to fruition.
What’s new for 2017? Here’s a sampling of Sidney Bowne’s 2017 projects.
Sidney Bowne has completed a Phase I feasibility study for Altice USA (formerly Cablevision) for a fiber build from the mainland of Suffolk County to Jones Beach Island and Fire Island, an ambitious initiative to extend Altice’s existing high speed network and bandwidth service to the seashore communities. Pending Altice’s review and evaluation of the Phase I study, Sidney Bowne looks forward to work on Phase II, providing an evaluation of costs, realistic schedules for required approvals and an implementation plan. The Phase II Study will additionally explore the opportunity for State and Federal funding for the endeavor.
