Wyandanch Train Station
Acorn Street, Wyandanch, NY
Client:Metropolitan Transportation Authority
Architect:Keller Sandgren Architects
Size:3,000 s/f
Cost:$2.8 million
Stalco served as general contractor for the new Wyandanch train station building, which refers architecturally to the great Romanesque Revival railroad architecture of the late 19th century. The structure features a foundation system of concrete footings and walls that support the building’s floor slab, which is elevated to the level of the train platform. The structural system is comprised of a steel frame and concrete masonry unit (CMU) external and internal walls.
The structure’s 3,000-sq. ft. interiors feature six niches nestled within barrel vaults and accompanied by dramatic arched windows, as well as the central cathedral-style ceiling. There are two seating niches with benches on the west side and one on the east side, the niches on the north and south sides house entrances into the building, an one on the east side serves as a ticket booth.
Within the interior, tiled areas on the walls and the ceilings draw the eye with bead board that has a clear finish and dark trim. A large, comfortable lobby/waiting area features a ticket window, metal benches, Wi-Fi, abundant cell phone charging stations, and public restrooms. MTA commissioned the custom artwork, which was incorporated into the terrazzo floor.
Other critical construction work, which was taking place simultaneously by different contractors in the area surrounding the Wyandanch Station, created logistical challenges for the project management team. Stalco coordinated closely with other crews and, at times, transferred up to a full quarter of the station site to them. Through skilled scheduling and thanks to the dedication of the entire project team, the new station was still delivered on schedule.
