Project Detail

Wharf Phase 1

Washington, D.C.

Scope of Work

Cianbro was awarded a contract to perform all the marine work at The Wharf in Washington, D.C. The project is located in the Washington Channel along the Potomac River. The contract included the construction of four new piers, comprised of precast concrete piling, caps, planks and a reinforced concrete deck. Other key components of the project included timber fender throughout, bulkhead reconstruction, and the installation of steel pipe pile for new concrete floating docks.

Project Details

  • Cianbro furnished and installed approximately:
    • 19,000 linear feet of 24-inch by 24-inch precast concrete piling
    • 23,000 linear feet of 12-inch diameter timber piles
    • 10,000 ton of precast concrete caps and planks
    • 2,500 cubic yards of reinforced concrete
    • 130,000 bf of new timber fender system

Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

Cianbro collaborated daily with the owner and design team in order to streamline the design and construction schedules. All the work was performed from the water, which required detailed planning and coordination as it related to the delivery of the massive substructure components for the piers, by barge. With the landside construction directly adjacent to Cianbro’s work, precise coordination was required as the project progressed through out the construction phase.
