Pier D46 Rehabilitation, Port of Long Beach Facility
Long Beach, CA
NCI prepared construction repair plans and specifications for three tasks for GP Gypsum at their Port of Long Beach Facility. The first was the structural repair of an existing 50-year old concrete wharf that, due to time and a corrosive environment, developed numerous cracks and spalls. These cracks and spalls were inventoried, stripped, cleaned and repaired either with formed or injected epoxy grout. There were approximately 150 individual repairs performed. The second task was the repair of 18 existing corroded piles that were supporting the building. NCI used a filter reinforced jacket around the piles and injected grout. The repair methods were compatible with the Phase 2 repairs that were anticipated for the substructure. The third task was a fender replacement feasibility report. NCI evaluated wharf fender alternatives and provided recommendations to replace the existing deteriorated fenders. Cost estimate and analysis were also provided.
