Highpoint at Douglaston Retaining Walls and Parking Lot
This 60-unit apartment complex in Douglaston was constructed in the early 1980’s at the bottom of a steep slope neighboring a NYC owned golf course. The slopes were stabilized using a maze like series of timber retaining walls comprised of untreated lumber. Hayduk Engineering was brought in on this project in 2005 to analyze the existing condition of the deteriorated timber retaining walls and side slopes. Hayduk Engineering provided an existing conditions report and design plans and specifications for the replacement of the existing deteriorated timber retaining walls with 1,900 LF of new precast concrete segmental retaining wall units, ranging in height from 3’-18’.
Hayduk Engineering provided full time construction management services for this $2+ million construction project. Construction was completed in 2016.
