Waterfront and Marine Services

Infrastructure Engineers’ personnel approach inspection and repair projects with a safe, methodical, and analytical engineering-based process, particularly in difficult access scenarios commonly found at waterfront facilities such as under piers and in confined spaces. Our 60+ full-time inspectors have attended a multitude of national courses and training related to structural inspection; they also carry specialized certifications from the Association of Diving Contractors International and the Society of Professional Rope Access Engineers. Experienced in a wide variety of structures and diverse environments, the company is well-equipped to carry out inspections from simple, straightforward tasks to more intricate projects that require complex equipment, tools, or material sampling and testing regimens. Our waterfront/marine facilities services for inspection include the following:

  • Above and below water structural inspection
  • Material sampling and testing
  • Fender and mooring hardware assessment
  • Excavation and testing of buried structures
  • Material condition surveys, sampling, and testing
  • Cathodic protection system inspection
  • Underdeck inspections
  • Underwater ultrasonic testing
  • Bottom debris survey
  • Pre/post-construction inspection
  • Quality assurance/quality control inspections
  • Acoustic imaging

Once Infrastructure Engineers’ engineer-diver personnel have established the above and below water condition of a structure, the same personnel prepare reports, plans, specifications, and cost estimates (PS&E) for execution of repairs. This documentation is made on the basis of facility sustainment and/or repair. These documents are prepared by the same engineer-divers that performed the investigations and can be used for soliciting construction services to execute the work in either conventional design-bid-build or design-build procurement methods. Our services for waterfront and marine facilities repair design include the following:

  • Pile wrapping/jacketing design
  • Element replacement
  • Concrete repair
  • FRP repair design
  • Cathodic protection repair design
  • Coating repair
  • Structural analysis/load rating of timber, concrete, and steel elements
  • Shoreline repair/protection design
