Little Island @ Pier 55, part of the Hudson River Park Trust project in New York City, won top honors in the American Society of Concrete Contractors' 13th annual awards program.

The Decorative Concrete Council (DCC), a specialty council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), announced the winners of its 13th annual Decorative Concrete Awards competition during ASCC’s Annual Conference in September.

The winner of the WOW! Award for best overall project was Little Island @ Pier 55 in New York City by Ruttura & Sons Construction Co. Inc. of West Babylon, N.Y.

ASCC describes the project as follows:

Little Island is a $250 million Hudson River Park Trust project that takes the idea of piers and parks to a new level. The most visible portion is the pots, fabricated giant cups put together with pieces called petals. Thirty-nine sets of formwork were made after extensive 3D computer modeling to create the 132 pots.

While the pots were modeled, cast, and assembled, marine contractors drove the pilings in stages, up to 200 ft. below the river. The project includes a total of 267-cylinder piles, each supporting approximately 250 to 350 tons.

The “jewel” of the project, according to Kevin Zimont, a project executive with construction management firm Hunter Roberts Construction Group, is the 700-seat amphitheater. “Architectural concrete designed for a 100-year life cycle made it difficult to satisfy the architect’s wishes,” says D. Thomas Ruttura, Ruttura & Sons Const. Co.
