PILING & SUBSTRUCTURE
56 precast steel reinforced slabs and forms were constructed on-shore
BVI Cruise Pier Expansion
Fourteen pile caps were constructed on top of groups of six 36” piles. 56 precast steel reinforced slabs and forms were constructed on-shore to make the deck topping; each was installed with barge and crane.
The mooring dolphins were constructed on a group of sixteen 48” piles. For each dolphin, 160 cubic yards of concrete was poured. During the pour process, a procession of concrete trucks were ferried out to sea on a roll-on, roll-off barge and a boom concrete pump used to fill the pile caps.
