This project highlights a new vinyl bulkhead installation over in Cotuit. The wall is over 180’ long and made up of ShoreGuard vinyl sheet-piling, and Chance helical tie back anchors. After the new wall was installed and all the fastening complete, the wall was backfilled with over 150 cubic yard of clean compatible fill material to re-nourish the heavily eroded embankment. All wall construction mobilization and installation had to be done by water, however, all of the new fill material was brought in from the upland side of this project and installed using a chute system. This was done to confirm there would be no further disturbance of the embankment.
This project reflects our maintenance crew installing new IPE decking on a pier in Oyster Harbors. By using stainless steel screws to increase longevity and prevent rust, upon completion of decking, the old pier was demolished, as well as the old cross bracing. New cross bracing had been installed using a 3”x8” pressure treated lumber and galvanized hardware. This new cross bracing restricts the amount of lateral movement in the pier. Once these phases were complete, the crew installed 2 sets of TaylorMade Boat Whips. The boat whips are used to prevent boats from rubbing against the pier.
This project was a total upgrade for this property’s beachfront. This project included 180 feet of revetment reconstruction using a combination of the existing armor stone and new armor stone, and a 4’ increase in the top of wall elevation. In addition to the fortification of the wall, 2,200 cubic yards of beach compatible nourishment sand was installed to provide a buffer area between the seawall and the ocean. The stone groin projecting out into the water were completely reconstructed to help retain the sand from laterals erosion. Lastly, an embankment staircase and deck area were upgraded and reconstructed using wedge anchor to anchor the structure to the new revetment and finished with IPE Hardwood decking and handrail material.
Location: Osterville, MA
Completion Date: December 2015
Project Details: Beacon Marine was hired to provide support services for an engineering firm hired to inspect the West Bay Bridge. Using a manlift on our deck scow and our push boat Alex G, we were able to successfully reach all of our inspection points.
