Avondale Marine Project
About this Project
Client: Avondale Marine T. Parker Host
Project Type: Marine
Boh Bros. assisted Avondale Marine – T. Parker Host in rebuilding Dock No. 2 so that Host can use the dock’s existing pile-supported ship ways to construct a suspended roadway. Once operational, trucks will be able to carry heavy loads from dock to land, and vice versa, as the roadway will have a 100-ton capacity. All totaled, 39 panels were created using a 5,000 psi concrete, along with rather large, No. 11 reinforcing steel. Three panel sizes were needed to achieve the desired configurations.
In addition to Dock 2 upgrades, Boh also refurbished Wet Docks 3, 4, and 5 by installing an 8” thick reinforced concreting topping slab across the Wet Docks. The concrete topping slab increased the dock’s capacity from a 5,000 pound passenger truck to HS-20 loading, which allows for a three-axle semitrailer combination weighing 72,000 pounds.
