Diamond in the Pines (Avalon) - Site Improvements

Project Details

Client: Town of Brookhaven, NY

Location: Coram, NY

Project Summary

The Diamond in the Pines Park is a 52-acre site dedicated to the Town of Brookhaven from the developer of the Condominium Complex directly across County Road 83 titled “Avalon Pines”.   The Town was provided with a front entrance roadway/parking lot, comfort station and two softball fields with fences and lighting.  In 2006 LKMA was directed to develop a conceptual plan for the proposed “mega-park”.  The first phase of site improvements included the construction of a full size multi-purpose artificial turf field, ballfield lighting system, expansion of the existing parking, a new playground assembly, a handicap football field (deco-surface) and a new park pavilion accompanied by shade trees.  The first phase of site improvements totaled a cost of $2,500,000 and was constructed by various contractors over an 18 month period.  LKMA prepared bid specifications and construction drawings for all of the above-referenced improvements and provided construction management and support services (survey, administrative) for the project.
