Pier 15 Wharf Enhancements

Project Name: Pier 15 Wharf Enhancements
Location: Charleston, South Carolina
Contract Number: CIF02E013A
The project consisted of new construction to accommodate new cranes as well as select concrete repairs due to reinforcing steel corrosion. Work was completed in four separate phases, each covering a portion of the existing 1,772 foot long wharf. For each phase, the activities were similar and each phase had to be completed before a subsequent phase could start. The key elements of work included: installation of a new sheet pile cutoff toe wall underwater, H-pile fendering system, pre-stressed concrete bearing piles, cast in place reinforced concrete foundations for new crane rails, crane rails, electrical utilities, and installation of new waterlines and water vaults.
