Islip Beach Comfort Station
Client: Town of Islip, NY
Location: Islip Town Beach, Islip, NY
In response to the destruction of the existing comfort station at Islip Beach caused by Superstorm Sandy, LKMA prepared expedited contract plans for a modular, pre-cast concrete comfort station and concessions building on a pile foundation so that the beach could be re-opened for the summer season. The new facility includes handicapped bathrooms, showers and ramps and is equipped with an energy efficient lighting system. Ramps, railings, and boardwalks are made from a dense tropical hardwood. The cost of the project was $1.76 million, with the majority of funding to come from FEMA. LKMA also provided construction oversight and assisted the Town with their efforts to received reimbursement for the project from FEMA.
