New York City opened its first-ever floating park called "Little Island" on May 21st, 2021. The park floats above the Hudson River in New York City.  

The project brought together a robust collaboration of local fabricators and contractors, who helped make the park vision a reality. A team of engineers, artisans, and tradespeople worked together to transform the park from a design concept to physical reality. The $260 million, 2.4-acre park — took more than five years to be built. 

Hunter Roberts Construction Group was the Construction Manager, overseeing all subcontractors and on-site work. Brian Aronne, the project's lead engineer, will come to UVA on October 15th to talk about the construction and major challenges of Little Island at Pier 55 in NY. Brian will also talk about careers in Construction Engineering and Management -CEM (See the attached flyer).

Do not miss the opportunity to learn about the project from the first-hand perspective of Brian Aronne.
