KC is designing an indoor riding arena to meet the needs of West Point Military Academy’s Association of Graduates and its equestrian teams. The West Point equestrian team requires the stability of an indoor arena to have uninterrupted practice time during inclement weather.
The arena design will utilize energy-efficient lighting, new efficient mechanical appliances, and a building layout created to allow for ease of maintenance, with straight layouts for tractor access.
The arena will include a 1,100 square foot temperature-controlled tiered viewing area, announcer’s booth, guest viewing, full restrooms, locker room changing facilities, and a sound system for the hosting of equestrian events and competitions.
KC was asked by Stantec to provide consulting services to the NYSDOT for construction of a salt shed in Hauppauge, NY. KC worked closely with Advanced Storage Technology (AST) to develop the architectural plans for the 104 x 70 foot salt storage shed, which is capable of storing up to 3,000 cubic yards of salt. KC’s NYC Office performed all of the site development while KC’s Circleville office worked closely with the architect, designed the electrical system, and wrote the specifications for the project.
One of the requirements was that the salt shed needed to be complete by the end of November 2016 so that it could be used that winter. The project design was started in mid-July, and salt was being stored in the shed by mid-December 2016.
This project consisted of constructing new office space for the Town of Wallkill’s Boys and Girls Club. The park, previously a nunnery, had housed the Town’s Boys and Girls Club offices in an older building. The building had to be demolished due to the condition and the Club was forced to relocate to rented offices in the City of Middletown. KC designed new office space using modular building construction technology. By using modular technology, the building construction was expedited to allow conformance within the tight building schedule irrespective of the upcoming winter season. The 3,400 SF building includes office space for the Boys and Girls Club operations upstairs and a recreation center on the lower level. The lower level also contains two public restrooms and a lifeguard shower to be used by the public visiting the adjacent lake.
KC provided architectural and engineering services to complete the design of the Warwick Public Transit Garage, including the design of the prefabricated steel building, foundation, and slab on grade; plumbing systems; roof drainage system; heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems; and other components. Additionally, KC prepared technical specifications for the project to comply with all current Code provisions.
During the design phase, KC was committed to delivering a facility with both exceptional functionality and aesthetic appeal. Accordingly, special consideration was given to the rural character intrinsic to the area in addition to the building’s proximity to a main artery to the village and its placement within the Town building complex. The garage is currently under construction.
KC completed a site analysis, schematic design, design development, and construction documents to fully develop surface street and rail trail improvements connecting the Midtown Kingston neighborhoods with the Rondout and waterfront district.
After gathering site inventory data, KC provided surveying services and base mapping, prepared three schematic designs for multi-modal connections to bring existing regional trail systems to the Midtown Hub, created a walkable connection along the Rondout Waterfront, completed the design of the 1.5-mile Kingston Point Rail Trail, and drafted the final design construction drawings and specifications.
KC provided construction support surveying services to the Carteret Group for a major 250-lot residential subdivision in the Village of Woodbury. Work included construction stakeout of roads and infrastructure for the entire project including preparation of boundary surveys for each individual lot, as-builts for entire subdivision, and construction support services.
KC provided civil engineering and surveying services for the construction of the new highway garage for the Village of Wappingers Falls. The 7,254 SF building was constructed on a vacant site in the Village of Wappingers Falls on Market Street.
Our services consisted of coordinating the necessary subsurface soil investigations, designing and laying out the foundation, providing sanitary sewage facilities for the building, providing water facilities for both domestic and firefighting purposes for the building, and designing the storm water management plan for the site. KC coordinated with the Building Superintendent of the Village of Wappingers Falls during the construction of the building and site throughout the project.
The project consisted of redeveloping an underutilized 130-acre horse farm in the Town of Goshen by completely overhauling the grounds for a new privately owned and managed Equestrian Center. The farm had been utilized by private residents for their horses. KC was retained prior to the purchase by the new owner for due diligence and master planning of the proposed farm and equestrian facilities.
The existing barn was determined to be salvageable and was proposed for complete renovation. It now includes 15 boarding stalls, a tack room, storage rooms, and garage. A new 200’ by 85’ indoor riding arena was designed to allow for year-round usage of the facilities along with an adjoining administration building with climate-controlled tack rooms, offices, a kitchen, and an elevated viewing area.

KC provided evaluation, design, and construction support services for the replacement of the existing 40-year-old water booster station that was not adequate to serve the new Student Housing Building on the Dutchess Community College campus. The existing water booster station building was utilized for the new booster pump equipment and the new pumps included variable frequency drive controls for efficiency.
The controls monitored flow rather than pressure for better hydraulics in the water system. SCADA was included for remote operation, monitoring, and adjustments. Also included was a natural gas emergency generator.
This project was the construction of a new CDC for the children of West Point residents and members of the United States Armed Forces. Construction included a 12,000 SF modular building along with a parking lot, storm water management facilities, and supporting utilities.
KC provided engineering design services for the preparation of a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan, and obtained necessary NYSDEC permits for construction.
KC’s land development group is a leading provider of feasibility studies, constraints mapping, and conceptual development plans for commercial and residential construction. A feasibility study is a comprehensive report for a potential development site. Our report provides information on the feasibility of improving a site in conformance with all land use regulations and existing site conditions. After the feasibility review, we can subsequently prepare a constraints map, which is a visually comprehensive plan depicting the remaining area available for the development proposal. A conceptual development plan then incorporates the results of the feasibility study and constraints map. This plan may include preliminary storm water detention areas, proposed utility connections, parking and potential building areas, preliminary road layouts, and the feasible number of conforming subdivided lots.
The planning of new construction requires both vision and engineering excellence. Well-designed developments take advantage of natural conditions to accomplish an efficient layout that maximizes development objectives while reducing construction costs. Our diversified staff of engineers, planners, and landscape architects are experts at integrating new construction within existing communities. Our understanding of state and local permitting processes expedite costly regulatory submissions and minimize the public review processes. The design team focuses on creating site plans that are sensitive to the community and environment while achieving land improvements that are functional and aesthetically pleasing.
KC’s land development groups contains many civil, structural, water, wastewater, traffic, resident, office, and environmental engineers and land surveyors skilled in the design of access and entry points, roadways, structures, drainage, and infrastructure, managing construction, performing environmental testing and analyses, feasibility studies, and traffic analyses, designing storm water management plans, and conducting surveys including GIS services and right-of-way mapping.
