Maritime Pier & Uplands Development - Gig Harbor, Washington
Sitts & Hill Engineers, Inc. was hired by the City of Gig Harbor to provide engineering, surveying and regulatory permitting services in support of the proposed Maritime Pier and parking lot improvements. The project is located on a remediated brown-field. The City purchased the site to provide increased access to the waterfront amenities, including the proposed pier, viewing platform and local areas of interest. The majority of the site and the pier, in their existing condition, were not suitable for public access. The uplands portion of the project including waterfront viewing area and paved parking for thirty-five vehicles was completed in 2011. The new restroom facility was completed in 2012. A new fixed pier and float to replace the previous pier structure, intended to provide access for the commercial Pier improvements for multi-use, fishing fleet access and private boaters, was completed during the fish window in 2012.
