Resiliency & Sustainability
Good infrastructure has the power to contribute to a more sustainable and resilient future..
Kyle Conti Construction’s sustainable construction incorporates a fusion of technological innovation, architectural quality, ethical standards, social responsibility, resource and environmental performance, and economic efficiency.
Our projects consistently demonstrate innovative approaches to sustainable development and architectural superiority through our forward-thinking design, integration of sustainable materials and methods, structure, and mechanical systems; all of which combine to foster resiliency for environmental disasters.
As an essential part of our philosophy, our projects exhibit a sensible use and management of natural resources and lean construction implementation to minimize the ecological footprint.
Army Corps Greenbrook Flood Damage Reduction Project
This project involved a combination of heavy civil construction and building construction trades in order to complete this important flood protection facility for the town of Bound Brook, NJ.
Working in the flood-prone region … at (a) congested intersection… KCC’s crew shoe-horned this project into a very small site bordered by main roads.
Working in the flood-prone region of Bound Brook at the congested intersection of South Main Street and Railroad Avenue, KCC’s crew shoe-horned this project into a very small site bordered by main roads, an embankment that supported an operating passenger railroad, and an operational firehouse that had to be kept in operation at all times. Due to the close proximity of the work areas to the operating railroad, all of KCC’s field staff and work crews were required to attend NJ Transit Railroad Safety Training Classes.
Army Corps - Port Monmouth Flood Wall
Hurricane and Storm Damage Reduction Project, Port Monmouth, NJ, Phase II-Contract 3.
A replenished coastline combined with a variety of flood-control measures will reduce risk of flooding and damage from coastal storms.
In June 2014, the district began the first phase of an extensive $110 million hurricane and storm damage risk reduction project along the shores of Raritan and Sandy Hook Bay in Port Monmouth, N.J., providing coastal-storm risk reduction for low-lying residential and commercial structures. Hit hard by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, with more than 700 structures damaged, problems had been escalating due to shoreline erosion and increased urbanization and development in an area with wetlands and creeks.
“The Army Corps of Engineers is pleased to provide this project for residents of Port Monmouth and the greater Middletown Township, home to nearly 66,000 people,” said program manager David Gentile. “A replenished coastline combined with a variety of flood-control.
