470 Kent Avenue Echoscope Survey

470 Kent Avenue Echoscope Survey.jpg
Project Overview: 
Due to a collapsed portion of Bulkhead, McLaren was hired to perform an Echoscope Survey for the purpose of determining collapsed portions of the structure, outfall locations, pile locations and debris fields outboard of the structure.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren prepared the Echoscope including attaching and calibrating equipment through the provision of a field survey crew. McLaren collected data along the 800 foot bulkhead. Survey data was collected in the NAD 83 horizontal coordinate system and NAVD 88 Vertical datum. Final reports, underwater images and videos were provided to the client. Specific results from the survey were utilized to quantify offshore debris, chart water depths and detail the issues with the bulkhead.

Shanghai Disney Store Outdoor Plaza Clock Tower

Disney Clock Tower Shanghai China.JPG
Project Overview: 
McLaren reviewed and analyzed all mechanical and structural components encompassing both the Show Action Equipment and the structural elements of a 60 feet tall Glockenspiel-Style Clock Tower. The Shanghai Disney Store is the largest Disney retail location in the world and the first Disney Store to have an outdoor plaza and clock tower.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided a Basis of Engineering document, weight summary, analysis of all structures and elements in each load path, engineering calculations and explanatory diagrams for each analysis, factors of safety results for each analysis of purchased commercial items, graphic results, computer aided analysis, load path summaries, and a summary report with assumptions. McLaren reviewed and redlined drawings produced by the Hudson Scenic Studio, Inc.

Project Overview: 
The concrete recreational pier is located on the waterfront to the northeast of the intersection of Washington Terrace and Harbor Boulevard.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided marine structural design, surveying, and environmental permitting services for this waterfront pier. Phase 1 included a preliminary design and permit review, which comprised land and bathymetric survey work, a subsurface geotechnical investigation, an environmental study and permit pre-application review and preliminary structural design. In addition to the schematic layout, at the completion of Phase 1, McLaren developed the design basis, which included the survey results, a proposed design loading criteria, and geotechnical design parameters. McLaren advanced the project during Phase 2 by performing engineering design calculations and preparing technical documents including plans and specifications. In addition, McLaren prepared all environmental permit applications and responded to agency questions as the representative of the Township. Phase 3, included construction phase support services.
