Infrastructure Engineers provides ocean engineering services under a second consecutive indefinite quantity contract to support the US Coast Guard Civil Engineering Program nationwide. Our task orders have included above and below water inspections on aid-to-navigation (ATON) structures in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Puerto Rico; above and below water waterfront facilities inspections at US Coast Guard installations in California, Connecticut, Oregon, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington state; inspection and maintenance of floating docks at 35 facilities in California, Oregon, and Washington; and various waterfront facilities design tasks.
Under a five-year indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity contract, Infrastructure Engineers was contracted by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to provide diving inspection and construction services at culverts, canals, levees, locks, spillways, and waterfront structures. Typical projects included diving work at pump stations, inspection of spillway sheet piling and structural integrity, overall lock inspection, dewatering operations, and inspection and cleaning of spillway structures. Each inspection required an in-depth engineering report with CAD drawings. We received a national USACE safety award for diving operations in south Florida.
Infrastructure Engineers performed facilities condition assessments at seven locations in Washington state parks, including six boat ramps and six docks ranging from 100 ft. to 650 ft. The project included inspection and accurate analyses of all visible components and elements requiring replacement, maintenance, or other planned action. The results were detailed in a facilities condition assessment report.
Infrastructure Engineers performed the structural inspection of the 732-ft. long x 516-ft. wide Terminals E and F, specifically two exterior rows of piles (Rows 1, 2, A, and B) and interior steel sheet pile walls. The inspection included channel evaluation, scour condition assessment, and substructure condition assessments of concrete piles, fender piles and steel sheet pile walls. Ultrasonic thickness measurements were taken at random locations to document section loss. A comprehensive report was prepared with a summary of findings, inspection defects listings, inspection sounding data, photographs, and repair recommendations.
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:
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:
