Institute of Ocean Sciences Patricia Bay - Wharf refurbishment

This project involves the repair of several structures on the wharf at the Institute of Ocean Sciences. All of these structures are currently aging and in need of repairs. The wharf is used daily by the Department's crews and vessels, and is critical to the regular operations of this facility. The proposed construction involves repairs to haunch of the double-tee beam at trestle abutment, repairs to the approach trestle joint, expansion joint replacement at bent 12, topping repairs over the crib structure between bents 12 and 13 (on pier 1), removal of redundant damaged camel posts, replacement of concrete box girder covers with fabricated steel plat covers, and concrete repairs at cleat pedestal at bent 4A.
