Parrish Art Museum

Project Location: Watermill, Town of Southampton, NY
Client: Parrish Art Museum

The Parrish Art Museum’s landscape and building embraces the built and natural environment and celebrates the creative culture of Long Island’s East End.  The 36,500-sf building was situated on the 14-ac site to foster the image of the community’s agricultural heritage.  The 350-stall parking lot has been placed so as not to be visible from the adjacent highway, allowing for the bulk of the 9 acres  dedicated to meadow, successional vegetation, vegetated drainage recharge areas and other passive open space to be located between the highway and the museum building.

Nelson + Pope’s services also included the surveying, engineering, design and preparation of conceptual plans and technical assistance for the Environmental Impact Statement and SEQRA process; plans for the project’s site improvements and infrastructure, vegetated drainage swales and recharge areas, sanitary and kitchen wastewater disposal system, water services, New York State Department of Transportation Highway Work Permit; traffic impact study and engineering for the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).  During construction, N+P provided construction technical assistance; construction observation, documentation and certification of NYS highway work and SWPPP monitoring. N+P staff assisted the Client in the procurement of municipal permitting and approvals.
