Biller Reinhart Engineering Group, Inc. performed a condition survey of the reinforced concrete seawall at the subject property. The purpose of the survey was to observe the current state of the seawall and generate a report documenting findings with any repair and/or maintenance recommendations. The survey focused on conditions of the existing concrete that may adversely affect the structural integrity of the seawall. BillerReinhart reviewed available construction documents for the seawall and performed a condition survey along the top surface and along the seaward wall and wall base. Physical soundings of the readily accessible surfaces and visual observations were performed to evaluate existing conditions.
BillerReinhart prepared a condition survey report with the data obtained during the survey. The condition survey report will includes descriptions of observed deterioration, representative photographs and repair recommendations. Based on the results of the condition survey, BillerReinhart produced a Project Manual for contractor bidding, permitting, and construction. The Project Manual contains instructions to bidders, a copy of the condition survey report, terms and conditions for the contractor, a scope of work for the project, technical specifications, required construction details, and estimated repair quantities for bidding purposes. The design incorporates state of the art repair techniques used to extend the service life of the existing structure for a fraction of the cost of a replacement. The project is currently in the permitting phase. BillerReinhart will also attend project related meetings and perform site visits to observe project construction.
Additionally, BillerReinhart performed a structural condition survey of the marina docks to document the condition of the structures and provide an assessment, via observational and computational analysis. The three finger docks extend approximately 255 feet waterward and contain 41 slips. The piles, bents, stringers, decking and accessories were evaluated. An element level and overall rating system was used to describe the condition of the structures. BillerReinhart provided the client a graphical representation of the typical boat profile that can be moored at wind levels comparable to category 1, 2 and 3 hurricanes.
