project at a glance

The historic Pier 59 was supported on approximately 1,000 wood, steel and concrete piles which needed to be replaced. The project removed nearly all of the piles and replaced with 260 standard steel piles, and telescoping steel replacement piles. During the preconstruction phase, there was extensive coordination with The Department of Fish and Wildlife, local Marine Biologists and The Army Corps of Engineers to meet all permitting requirements and ensure a smooth construction activity would take place. A concrete apron was constructed around the perimeter of the pier. The new 25,000 square foot pier structure was built with heavy timber Fir members to replicate the original structure. This space was built to accommodate the new Aquarium exhibits including the new 120,000 gallon window on Washington as well as a new Gift Shop and Café.
