Statue of Liberty - Service Dock Replacement

Marine Projects
May 2013 through July 2013
Value of work performed: $

This accelerated schedule project included the removal of over 200 existing timber piles from the previous service dock which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.  The new Service Dock Pier included the installation of 193 fiberglass piles with concrete fill, greenheart timber framing, and treated timber decking.  

Concurrently, the project included the installation of a temporary docking location for Statue Cruises.  This consisted of the re-purposing and re-conditioning of a 300’ x 40’ car float to accommodate 150’ & 120’ Tourist Cruise Boats carrying approximately 3,500 visitors per hour.

The project consists of a high level of coordination with State and Federal Authorities due to the security measures in place on Ellis and Liberty Island.

Pier Dimensions:

  • 250’ x 20’ Pier Stem w/ an 80’ x 25’ T Platform
  • Greenheart Timber Pile w/ Steel Wale Fender System

The project mobilized to Liberty Island on 5/11/2013 and completed on 6/30/2013.
