Project Name: World Trade Center projects, New York, NY

Project Type: Perimeter Wall, Closures, Bollard Protection System

Project Description: Flood Control America has produced a custom removable floodwall system for the World Trade Center. As of late 2016 and early 2017, two projects are complete and a third project is underway. The first project protects Tower One (the Freedom Tower) while the second project protects the Vehicular Security Center (VSC).

Tower One removable floodwall planks.

A stack of Flood Control America's stop log planks are ready to be deployed beneath the Freedom Tower at World Trade Center.

World Trade Center bollard protection flood post.

The Bollard Protection System at World Trade Center utilizes the existing security bollards. Flood Control America fabricated custom posts to fit these bollards to adapt our removable flood wall to the conditions at Tower One. Projects at the VSC and Memorial use the same type of system.

Freedom Tower floodwall deployment.

FCA's extruded aluminum planks are gasketed to seal against each other and the bollard posts.

Removable flood planks.

The planks are light and easy to install.

5' removable floodwall at World Trade Center.

Both the Tower One floodwall project and VSC project have 5' and 8' high wall areas.

8' high removable floodwall panels at World Trade Center.

Both the Tower One floodwall project and VSC project have 5' and 8' high wall areas.

Bracing at the 8' high areas.

Significant diagonal bracing was required to absorb potentially large impact loads that could occur during a major flood event.

Hold down clamps.

Hold down clamps compress the flood planks against the horizontal gasket and create a water tight system.
