Pile Driving - The construction and retrofit of bridges and retaining walls often include driving piles for foundation support and shoring operations. Driven piles are typically constructed of precast concrete, steel, or timber. Driven sheet piles are also used for shoring and cofferdam construction. Proper control and use of equipment, materials, and waste products from pile driving operations will reduce or eliminate the discharge of potential pollutants to the storm drain system, watercourses, and waters of the United States.

Rip Rap - Riprap is rock or other material used to armor shorelines against water erosion. Riprap reduces water erosion by resisting the hydraulic attack and dissipating the energy of flowing water or waves. The shape of rock is important. Coarse, angular rock, usually made by crushing or blasting, or from scree, is more effective at ground reinforcement than round river rock. A correct mixture of aggregate size can also aid riprap's ability to create an interlocking structure.
Fender Systems - Marine fenders are an integral part of most large multi-use docks and piers. A well-designed fender system, tailored to specific vessel requirements, will protect a berthing facility and vessels for many years with minimal maintenance and/or future modification. Proven and tested fender systems will increase facility productivity and safety.
