Buro Happold wins award for NYC's High Line park

The New York Chapter of the New York State Society of Professional Engineers (NYSSPE) recently honored Buro Happold with the 2010 Project of the Year Award for the first’s work on the first section of the High Line – Manhattan’s abandoned elevated railroad that was transformed into an urban park. Buro Happold provided structural engineering in support of the new landscape architecture and architecture components and mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services. The 20th-century railroad was slated for demolition before the Friends of the High Line (FHL) championed the idea of converting it into an elevated park. Spanning between Gansevoort and 20th streets, the first section welcomes more than 15,000 visitors a day during the summer.

The design team also included landscape architects James Corner Field Operations and architects Diller Scofidio & Renfro. Robert Silman Associates provided historic preservation services for the existing steelwork. GRB Services, Langan Engineering and Philip Habib & Associates were also part of the team.
