Industries Transportation
Services Engineering and Operational Risk Assessment

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Lower Manhattan Recovery Office, supported by its project management oversight contractor Jacobs Carter-Burgess, is responsible for administering the funds allocated to transit-related projects at the World Trade Center site in New York. These projects were funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as central components of the post-9/11 recovery effort.

Our Role
As a subconsultant, Golder provided risk assessment and risk management support for the new Permanent PATH Terminal and Vehicle Security Center projects. The purpose of the risk assessment was to assist the FTA in determining the appropriate budget reserve to maintain for the nominal $4 billion (U.S.) projects and to assist the FTA and the grantee of the funds, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, in managing risks associated with these unique and unprecedented projects. When completed, the Permanent PATH Terminal will provide a world-class transit hub for lower Manhattan to include an underground station, spacious mezzanine, concourses with retail development, and an oculus designed by architect Santiago Calatrava.
