North Cove Yacht Harbor at the center of The World Financial Center is the home to the Manhattan Yacht Club and the North Cove Sailing School and was designed for 150-foot and larger mega yachts.

DLB Associates completed the original design and construction administration for electrical, water, and sanitary systems.

Due to the upscale theme of the harbor, all of the electric, water and sanitary services were concealed in vaults and trenches below ground.

For electric power and communications vaults below sea level, sophisticated air conditioning / dehumidification / dewatering systems were designed to prevent flooding and corrosion / breakdown of the equipment.


The Neptune Township Public School District is located in Neptune, New Jersey, "the crossroads of the Jersey Shore".

DLB Associates has worked on the heating & plumbing renovation of nine schools, including the following projects:

  • Classroom, Office, and Science Labs

Paterson, New Jersey is a large urban city near the east coast of New Jersey, with over 22,000 students. DLB has completed projects at 36 Patterson schools and 11 other district buildings.

The school has significantly upgraded its technology resources, opening three new computer labs, upgrading and improving several others, and substantially increasing the number (and quality) of individual computer stations throughout the building. Highlights some of our project experience include:

  • Computer Power Upgrade & LAN / WAN
  • Building Review and Coordination
  • Annual Service Specification
  • Lease Purchase Assistance
  • Infrastructure Upgrade
  • Boiler Replacement
  • Power Asbuilts
  • Fire Alarm


The Marlboro Board of Education contracted DLB to add electrical power infrastructure to all educational spaces within the district's six schools that lacked this infrastructure. DLB performed the following:

  • Construction administration services
  • Prepare construction documents
  • Electrical engineering design

Each school presented unique design challenges. The existing conditions at each school were considered during design development to yield the optimal installation for each school.

DLB acted as the lead MEP engineer to help establish and reengineer a new standard of care in operating room design and installation.

The result is a first-of-a-kind operating room solution, the first of which was implemented in Barcelona, Spain.

Designing a cutting-edge operating room requires cutting-edge technology, including:

  • BIM Modeling – photo realistic renderings were produced to ensure a consistent vision between the clients and the entire project team.
  • CFD Analysis – ensured uniform low air velocity & an even temperature distribution across the operating table.
  • 3D Collision Detection Software – identified potential interference issues long before construction began.
