Marine Projects
October 2013 through October 2015
Value of work performed: $19,446.320

After suffering several local collapses due to marine life attack on the timber piles, Berth 14 was demolished and replaced.  139 steel pipe piles 18” diameter were drilled into the bedrock below Newark Bay and 14” rock sockets drilled an additional 15 feet beyond.  Steel H-piles were inserted in the sockets, rebar cages installed, and the piles filled with concrete.  A King Pile system was built along the face of the berth with 76 36” diameter pipe piles driven to rock and steel sheet piles connected between them.   They also had rock sockets with H-piles and were filled with concrete.  Cast in place concrete pile caps were installed, precast concrete deck planks and a cast in place final deck was placed.
