Port of Albany - New Wharf at Sheds No. 4 and 5
This complex project required construction of an 800-foot long by 46-foot wide high-capacity wharf to replace the existing structure. The new wharf was designed to carry twice the load of the previous structure, and to support additional lateral loads from upland storage. A heavy lift rail was incorporated into the new wharf structure. The old wharf structure was left in place. Its low-level timber platform was supported on closely spaced vertical and battered timber piles, which presented significant challenges for design and installation of replacement piles.
