Dock Repair

In a recent project, NETSCo’s engineering team quickly responded to a client’s need for urgent repairs to a dock at a cement terminal. The existing dock was improperly built and so the shore had been stabilized with concrete bags and concrete blocks. Unfortunately, the poorly constructed wall crumpled away, thus compromising the working surface of the dock.  NETSCo contracted a geotechnical engineer to investigate soil properties and then designed the replacement retaining wall, consisting of a steel sheet piles and tie-backs. We also led the bidding process and assisted with selecting a contractor for the installation, finishing the job in a timely manner and to the satisfaction of our client.
