Port of Redwood City
The Wharves 1 & 2 Replacement Project involved demolition of an existing timber wharf and construction of a concrete wharf in addition to civil engineering site improvements. The site is underlain primarily with soft to stiff clay (i.e. Bay Mud) such that long-term settlement impacts needed to be considered in time design solutions. The project includes phased demolition plans, erosion control, design-build site improvement plans, and permit acquisition of the active port as well as RCRA closure of the former Gibson Environmental facility. Grading was an important aspect of this project due to strict conformance to FEMA, sea level rise, and City Flood Plain Elevation regulations.
