Landair served as owner's representative to help The Intrepid Museum Foundation's realize it's $100 million adaptive re-use of the USS Intrepid (CV-11), a National Historic Landmark, and Pier 86. The Master Plan addressed the daunting task of transforming a 900-foot long, 35,000-ton former aircraft carrier into a public museum, retaining its historically significant features and complying with Board of Standards and Appeals and local building code.
We developed a capital plan for multiple phases, carries out over seven years: that included the 6 month, fast tracked installation of the Michael Tyler Fisher Education Center - adaptively re-using the ship's fantail and involving SHPO approvals - essentially, and "addition and expansion" of the ship's infrastructure. Other phases included facility-wide fire suppression systems; the foc'sle restoration; and structural adaptation of Pier 86 plus preliminary planning for the pier design. Landair oversaw rigorous monitoring of scope, budget, schedule and communications; secured public funding reimbursements, and provided on-site representation.
