Halmar is a preeminent heavy civil construction management firm specializing in a wide variety of infrastructure projects across the following markets:

Highways & Bridges.

Halmar, a respected name in the highway and bridge construction industry, has decades of successful projects for NYSDOT, NYCDOT, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, Triboro Bridge and Tunnel Authority, NJDOT, PANYNJ, and the NYS Thruway Authority. Cumulatively, Halmar’s staff has built enough miles of highway to stretch more than halfway across the United States.  Winner of almost a dozen respected and coveted industry awards like Top Contractor, Pride in Transportation Construction, and NY Construction’s Top Project, agencies throughout the Northeast recognize Halmar’s impressive legacy of successful highway and bridge projects, delivered on time or early, as an extraordinary track record of success.  NYSDOT twice awarded Halmar their largest ever bridge construction projects, most recently on the I-95 Alexander Hamilton Bridge reconstruction project.


I-95 Alexander Hamilton Bridge Reconstruction.

The Region’s vital link between the Cross Bronx Expressway and the George Washington Bridge, the I-95 Alexander Hamilton Bridge, is one of the most congested sections of highway in the country. NYSDOT awarded Halmar a five-year $409 million project for the complete reconstruction of the bridge and associated ramp structures. The AHB project was one of the largest and most complex steel construction projects in NYC.  The project also required construction of over $100 million of temporary structures. Much of it was redesigned by Halmar.  This impressive project was completed on-time in 2014.


I-90 Patroon Island Bridge Rehabilitation.

The rehabilitation of the Patroon Island Bridge decking and all associated ramps, is the largest contract ever awarded in the Capital Region.  Special MPT plans and schedules were developed to minimize traffic congestion, in part by doing the majority of the deck reconstruction and replacement at night, making all lanes available each morning for the AM rush hour and handling over 80 thousand vehicles per day.


Belt Parkway Bridge Over Ocean Parkway.

The Belt Parkway is one of the most congested highways in New York City.  This NYCDOT design-build project to replace the Belt Parkway Bridge Over Ocean Parkway was scheduled to be constructed over one construction season.  Drawing on Halmar’s successful use of precast piers and bridge deck on the I-287 Cross Westchester Expressway project, Halmar developed a design for a precast bridge, which was built at another facility in upstate NY, brought to the project by truck and installed at night, savings commuters untold hours of snarled traffic. The project was completed 9 months ahead of schedule and awarded the ASCE Design/Build award in 2005.

Mass Transit.

From subways, to signals and stations, to maintenance facilities, Halmar International has a proven record of success with transit agencies throughout the region including MTA Capital Construction, NYCT, MTA, AMTRAK, MNCR, NJT and PANYNJ.  Working on 24/7 operating transit systems and live tracks is one of the most demanding and difficult environments in the construction industry.  Halmar’s team is intimately familiar with all aspects of mass transit work in the tri-state area. High-profile projects like the Concourse Line Re-Signaling completed a year ahead of schedule, or the Times Square Station Rehabilitation and the reconstruction of Coney Island’s Stillwell Avenue Terminal, two of the busiest, most iconic stations in the New York City Transit System, are just part of the legacy of Halmar’s transit work.  Decades of high profile, successful transit projects have positioned Halmar to deliver the most demanding Mass Transit projects on-time, safely and within budget.


NYCT Stillwell Avenue Terminal Reconstruction.

Halmar’s complete reconstruction of NYCT’s Stillwell Avenue Terminal, including all structural steel, platforms, station house and several associated buildings resulted in a state of the art facility, the linchpin of Coney Island’s redevelopment. This iconic project featured one of the largest photovoltaic roofs in the U.S. at the time (2,730 individual panels).


NYCT Concourse Line Signal Modernization Project.

This 36-month design-build project was the largest conventional wayside signal modernization project ever undertaken by NYCT.  Halmar completed the project one year ahead of schedule and under budget, and received the largest ever MTA OCIP Safety Incentive and won the 2008 American Public Works Association Project of the Year.


Metro North Yankee Stadium Station Design-Build Project.

Typical of Halmar’s most challenging projects, this fast-track 24-month design-build project had to be completed in time for Opening Day of the new Yankee Stadium.  This Design-Build Institute of America Project of the Year was successfully completed on-time and was praised by Metro North Railroad’s President Howard Permut who said “This design-build Yankee Stadium Station is the fastest station project Metro North has ever built.”


Halmar International has completed almost $400 million of work at JFK international Airport alone. An impressive body of work that spanned the better part of a decade, beginning in the 90’s and continuing well into the new Millennium. Our team has an unparalleled level of experience working in and around active airports on projects including passenger terminals, aprons, runways, taxiways, light rail stations, cargo facilities, multi-level parking garages, roads and bridges. We understand the mission critical nature of security and maintenance of aircraft operations and movements, as well as customer access and safety. We know how to get work completed on-time and within budget in these challenging environments.


British Airways Terminal (Terminal 7).

Halmar’s work at British Airways Terminal 7 included the civil structural work on the terminal, all the roads and bridges, the 850-car multi-level parking garage, the light rail station, and even the hardstands for the Concorde, designed and built by Halmar using high strength concrete mixes.


American Airlines Terminal (Terminal 8).

Halmar’s work at American Airlines Terminal 8 included the civil structural work on the terminal. The project called for the construction of taxiways, aprons, jet fueling system, glycol collection system, Installation of miles of underground utilities and soil remediation. Some of the work included 80,000 cubic yards of airside concrete apron and ramp construction for the American Airlines Terminal at JFK Airport. Many of the pours exceeded 1000 CY per crew per day.


International Arrivals Terminal (Terminal 4).

Halmar completed the landside construction for the new $1.3 Billion terminal, including roadways and parking, toll plazas, walkways and canopies, elevated arrivals-level ramps and bridges, approximately 30,000 CY of concrete and about 70,000 tons of steel. The work also entailed extensive utility relocations (5kv power, sewers, water mains, FAA cables and drainage), piles, concrete and steel, excavation and sheeting and associated site work. It was one of the First Public-Private Partnerships in New York State. The project was recognized by NY Construction News as one of the 2002 Top Projects.

Energy & Environmental.

Halmar’s experience embodies a wide range of government facilities, security, power generating, transmission and distribution plants, wastewater treatment plants and other mission critical facilities requiring the highest levels of Quality Assurance & Control.


DEC Shaft 4 Reconstruction.

This Department of Environmental Conservation project is a key component of the Catskill/Delaware water system which supplies 90% of New York City’s water.  Shaft 4’s intricate excavation and pipe laying will improve and update subsurface structures. The project included extensive environmental planning and design, regulatory compliance in one of the most regulated watersheds in the U.S. The project entailed multiple shut-downs of the Catskill and Delaware Aqueducts requiring extensive coordination with DEP Agencies BEDC and BWS, as well as subcontractors.


Brooklyn Navy Yard Power Generation.

Halmar’s out of the box energy solution to Brooklyn’s reinvigorated neighborhoods and rapidly growing population will deliver 79.9 megawatts of additional power without the enormous expense and long lead times required to build conventional power plants. This barge-mounted power generating facility can be quickly brought on line to provide much needed additional power at peak demand times.


PATH FEMA Flood Prevention.

This Emergency project consisted of installing flood barrier wall and associated flood prevention measures at the Harrison Car Maintenance Facility (HCMF), Substation 8 (Sub 8), and installing flood mitigating barriers at several PATH facilities in New Jersey. Halmar self-performed all excavation, concrete work, sealing of existing precast barrier, and bin block placement at HCMF and Sub 8. At PATH facilities, Halmar performed work to support and install the flood barriers, including minor demolition, concrete, and structural-steel work. Halmar also had the task of scheduling shift work to not impact the parking conditions at HCMF, and at the Hoboken Station to not impact the busy pedestrian traffic in the stairways.

Industrial, Institutional and Commercial.

Halmar’s private sector projects include state of the art manufacturing facilities for sensitive electronic components, the first Class-1 Clean Room built in the US, a molecular biology lab, pharmaceutical plants, assembly plants, warehouses and distribution centers, foundations and concrete work, and commercial high rise office space, including Halmar’s return to the World Trade Center to build the foundation and superstructure for Tower No. 2.


World Trade Center –
Tower 2.

Halmar was selected by Silverstein Properties to construction the foundations and superstructure for Tower No. 2. Halmar performed over $100 million of work in the shadow of the Freedom Tower. Work included controlled blasting and rock demolition methods in a highly sensitive environment. Halmar introduced value engineering by substituting high strength steel in lieu of normal rebar.  The project also incorporated blast-proof measures in columns and floor slabs.


610 Lexington Avenue Foundation.

In addition to excavation of soil and rock, including rock blasting, Halmar was called in to build the bulkheads for temporary and permanent support of excavations. Sheeting, bracing, and underpinning was developed to prevent displacement of adjacent ground and prevented loss of support to buildings, utilities, sidewalks and streets.   Additional work included site drainage and dewatering, and vibration monitoring. “Innovative methods were utilized, including use of rock anchors, saving several million dollars”– Turner Construction


IBM Headquarters and Semiconductor Facility

Halmar performed numerous projects for IBM headquarters, including work on the first Class-1 clean room in the U.S. and IBM’s Semiconductor Facility.


Halmar International has the expertise and experience on over a billion dollars worth of design-build work. By maximizing opportunities for innovation, cost savings and schedule reduction, we’ve managed our design-build projects to success for our clients. So it’s with good reason that New York City Transit and New York City Department of Transportation chose Halmar to build their first design-build projects.  We know what it takes to achieve successful design-build projects.


Yankee Stadium Station.

This Department of Environmental Conservation project is a key component of the Catskill/Delaware water system which supplies 90% of New York City’s water.  Shaft 4’s intricate excavation and pipe laying will improve and update subsurface structures. The project included extensive environmental planning and design, regulatory compliance in one of the most regulated watersheds in the U.S. The project entailed multiple shut-downs of the Catskill and Delaware Aqueducts requiring extensive coordination with DEP Agencies BEDC and BWS, as well as subcontractors.


South Ferry Terminal Box Construction.

This 100 plus year old terminal is used by more than 6 million people each year, including commuter transfers from the Staten Island Ferry terminal and tourists visiting Battery Park, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island.

As part of the joint venture, the improvements in this design-build project included longer platforms, a mezzanine, and new approach tunnel. Construction entailed complex underpinning of the existing subway lines while mining under active rail lines, installation of secant and h-piles, lagging support, roadway decking, controlled drill and blast operations, utility relocations, and support of historical artifacts.

A section of historic Dutch-fort stone wall, discovered during the site’s 2005 excavation, was reassembled as part of the tile wall at the station’s south mezzanine. The team maintained transit operations during construction. Work was performed within a congested urban environment and coordinated with Lower Manhattan traffic
and activities.


Region 8 Bundled Bridges.

On April 1, 2016, Governor Cuomo and Legislative leaders adopted the largest multi-year State Transportation Plan ever approved in New York.

In part, the new State Transportation Plan provides unprecedented support for local governments to maintain and improve roads and bridges. As part of this plan, groups of bridges were bundled into project packages. Halmar was awarded low bidder of the Region 8 Bridges for Dutchess and Columbia Counties. The work envisioned for this project will include six full bridge replacements which will include demolition of the existing structures and complete construction of the replacement bridges. Highway work for the full replacement bridges will include approach work to tie into the new structures.
