DiGeronimo Architects was Prime Consultant to the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA) / Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) for architectural / engineering services at the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel (BBT) for the following scope of work:
Replace the façade cladding on the Governors Island Building with granite wall panels using an innovative European metal framing system.

  • Replace elevators at the Brooklyn Battery and Governors Island Buildings.
  • Rehabilitate egress facilities at the Brooklyn Battery, Manhattan, and Governors Island Buildings.
  • Rehabilitate the dock and fender system at the Governors Island Building.

DiGeronimo PC, as Prime Consultant, put together a team that met 100% of MTA’s Woman Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) goals, with 88% of the contract fees going to Woman (WBE) and Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) firms.

DiGeronimo Architects specified recycled plastic lumber for the Governors Island Building’s dock and fenders. The project’s marine sub-consultant recommended the recycled material for durability. Using recycled materials helped the project to achieve sustainable goals.
