Seawall Naval Academy

Project Details:
Client:United States Naval Academy
City, State:Annapolis, MD
Sector(s):U.S. Federal
Service(s) Performed:General Contracting

Among Allen & Shariff Construction 2012 project awards, Repairs of Various Waterfront Structures at United States Naval Academy in Annapolis has proven to be another interesting challenge for our team. This $6.9M marine project was the first of its kind for ASC, with the vast majority of underwater structural work being performed underwater along Dewey, Halsey and McNair seawalls, Building 601, and a portion of the Farragut seawall.

An especially unique requirement discovered was our need to protect and preserve a grove of cherry trees that had been gifted by the 75th Class of the Imperial Japanese Naval Academy on the occasion of their visit to Annapolis with the Class of 1947. The trees were obstructing access to our ability to perform seawall work, resulting in a major financial and logistical impasse. After several months of negotiations with the client, a mutual agreement was reached, wherein the trees were relocated from their original location to another setting situated on the academy property.

Complete scope of work for this project consists of a major overhaul of the structural underwater seawall system, refurbishment to waterfront chain railing system, re-capping of above ground precast concrete wall, miscellaneous lighting and electrical work, sidewalk paving system. The project is slated to be complete in April 2014.
