Pier 14 in Newport News, VA, was recently acquired by Riverport LLC to support ship repairs. Pier 14 did not have adequate fenders or overall lateral capacity for berthing loads. Collins was tasked with the design of a new fender system, consisting of plumb prestressed concrete piles to support the reaction loads from floating foam fenders. The new fender system also incorporates battered piles to provide adequate overall lateral capacity to the pier. Collins provided construction inspection services throughout the construction which was completed October 2020.
