Naval Weapons Station, TC Dock Structural Repairs

Charleston, SC
Structural repairs to the 1,500 ft long, 136,000 SF dock. Issues included deteriorated concrete, damaged expansion joints, and broken fender piles. Pilings also required reinforcement to compensate for increase unbraced length due to dredging and inadequate bearing capacity. The $8M project also added vertical and battered piles and reinforced areas of the deck to withstand live loads of over 1,700 pounds per square foot.
