STV Promotes Scott McIntyre to Senior Vice President
Over the course of his more than 35-year career, STV’s Scott McIntyre, P.E., LEED AP, has been a central figure in the design and construction of some of the New York region’s most transformative passenger transportation initiatives, including the World Trade Center Transportation Hub and AirTrain JFK. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the industry and the firm, STV has promoted the New York-based senior project manager to senior vice president.
McIntyre’s involvement in the recently opened, $3.9 billion Hub in Lower Manhattan has spanned the past 14 years. He was STV's project director for the landmark transportation facility, which serves as a portal to the World Trade Center site while connecting a Port Authority Trans Hudson station with 10 New York City Transit lines. STV, as part of the Downtown Design Partnership, a joint venture of STV/AECOM, was the architect- and engineer-of-record, in association with Parsons Transportation Group and lead architectural designer Santiago Calatrava. McIntyre helped coordinate with an unprecedented number of stakeholders, including the client, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, as well as city, state and federal agencies, in bringing the project to fruition last March.
Prior to his role with the Hub, McIntyre was the project director for the $1.9 billion AirTrain JFK. Opened in 2003, this 8.3-mile light rail line connects John F. Kennedy International Airport with the Long Island Rail Road and New York City subway system. It was the first new rail line to be built in New York City in nearly 40 years and the city’s first design, build, operate, maintain (DBOM) initiative.
Another historic passenger rail assignment that McIntyre supported was NJ TRANSIT’s $1 billion Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit project, the rail industry’s first major DBOM assignment in the United States. McIntyre provided overall design management for the initial operating segment of the line serving Bayonne to Newport, NJ, which included 9.5 miles of right-of-way, 16 stations and maintenance and storage facilities.
McIntyre received his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA. He is a registered professional engineer in New York.
