Union Marina - Union, Washington
Sitts & Hill Engineers, Inc. was hired as a part of a design build team with Marine Floats to provide engineering and permitting services for a 145 foot long section of replacement float in an existing floating dock system. We also assisted with Grant compliance with owner. The replacement dock would be used for small craft moorage on a usual basis. The replacement dock was required to integrate with the existing steel pipe piles and existing pre-cast post-tensioned concrete T-shaped float to which the replacement float would attach. Very Specific wind and wave design criteria were also performed in the design specifications, requiring an in-depth analysis to ensure not only that the new dock was adequate to resist the imposed forces, but also compatible with the existing structures surrounding it.
