Providing Professional Services and Technical Support
The Division of Engineering provides professional engineering and construction services to county departments (e.g., Transportation, Parks, Aviation, MCC, Sheriff, Facilities, Community Hospital, and Pure Waters) that require technical support for capital planning, engineering design, and construction management. Projects include building renovations and construction; environmental assessments; and roadway, bridge, sewer, treatment plant process, pump station, park, jail, courtroom, and zoo improvements.
The Division is also responsible for overseeing all real estate functions within the county including leasing of county-owned/required space and facilities, lease management, acquisition and disposition of real estate, open space acquisition, easements, right-of-way, options, licenses and permits. Topographic surveys are also conducted and coordinated by the Division.
In addition, the Division enforces the NYS Unified Building Code, issues demolition and building permits and certificates of occupancy, and manages ADA accessibility compliance for over 400 County owned and leased facilities.
