Project Description

This design-build project took place at CVN Maintenance Pier Replacement at Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton, Washington. The project demolished the existing Pier Bravo (60 feet by 1200 feet) and designed and constructed a new ship repair wharf (85 feet by 1325 feet), including the replacement of approximately 600 lineal feet of quay wall (Structure 729), the strengthening of the 1000-lineal-foot sheet pile wall west of the Dry Dock 6 mole, and the demolition of Pier 8 (60 feet by 400 feet).

The project included the installation of 500 plus 24-inch piles, piers and concrete decking with inlaid crane tracks. The updated aircraft carrier maintenance pier is an improvement not only for work on modern nuclear-powered carriers such as USS John C. Stennis and USS Abraham Lincoln, but puts infrastructure in place for the next generation of aircraft carriers. The existing pier was 60 years old and too narrow to accommodate a crane and other equipment necessary for work on Nimitz-class carriers.
