Type: Waterfront / Wharf Improvements
Size: 11.5 Acres
Our work on this project included wharf strengthening, concrete utility trenches, partial replacement of the bilge oily water treatment system (BOWTS), removal of deficient and deteriorated water distribution system, installation of new ship connection risers and fire hydrants, and new foam filled fenders for ship berthing at Uniform and Tango Wharves on Naval Base Guam. Design-bid-build work (Part A) included strengthening Uniform Wharf (42 m x 384.4 m) and a portion of Tango Wharf (25 m x 190 m) by installing new king pile/sheet pile bulkhead wall, anchor wall and tieback system, concrete pile cap, stone column soil improvements, storm bollards, mooring hardware, and new foam filled fenders for ship berthing and the demolition of the small boat mooring facility. Design-build work (Part B) included the following work for both Uniform and Tango Wharves: concrete utility trenches, partial replacement of BOWTS, removal of deficient and deteriorated water distribution system, installation of new ship connection risers and fire hydrants, concrete paving of the entire wharf deck with storm drain and water quality treatment systems, installation of two new power mounds, infrastructure for telecom system and future power on Tango Wharf, and a cathodic protection system. Part B work also included strengthening Tango Wharf (25 m x 175 m) by installing new king pile/sheet pile bulkhead wall, anchor wall and tie-back system, concrete pile cap, stone column soil improvements, and mooring hardware. For the entire job, 24,600 CY was placed including the PCC and also the bulkhead wall and anchor wall.
