Train Station, Chappaqua, NY
(National Historic Landmark)
RBA Management, LLC was the construction management firm for the restoration of the National Landmark train station in Chappaqua, NY. This train station, originally built in 1902, was brought back to its original splendor. The project was awarded to low bidders according to New York State Wick’s Law. The funding was provided by Westchester County, US DOT, NYSDOT, and the Town of New Castle.
Specific project features include:
- Restored wood moldings and tongue in groove ceilings on exterior canopies
- Stamped concrete to mimic original wood planking platform
- Structural resupport of canopies and overhangs.
- Creation of a café in former baggage room.
Mr. Baird was hired by the Town of New Castle to oversee a $1.2 million renovation of the Chappaqua Railroad Station, a keystone facility in the Chappaqua hamlet that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. He maintains a steady presence on the job site, and consistently makes himself available for consultation. The New Castle Town Board has also expressed its satisfaction with Mr. Baird’s performance on behalf of the Town, and would certainly consider Mr. Baird for any future projects that would require similar construction administration.
