Battery Park City Marine Structures

Retaining Wall at Battery Park City
Project Overview: 
McLaren was retained by the Battery Park City Authority to perform a structural inspection of the piles, the precast concrete seawall skirt, and the riprap slope protection that surrounds the perimeter of the BPCA parcel in lower Manhattan.
McLaren's Role: 
Under this agreement, McLaren assessed the conditions of and made repair recommendations for approximately 3,500 precast concrete piles that support the relieving platforms at the Battery Park City esplanade, as well as timber piles that support a platform to the north end. Following the inpection, McLaren embarked upon a testing program to further investigate the “hot spots” (areas of significant deterioration). McLaren also performed a statistical analysis of the inspection data to determine the cause and extent of damage to the piles and seawall. McLaren considered the effects of water chemistry, abrasion, and impact in this analysis. Using the analysis results, we then developed repair alternatives with cost estimates. After the final repair scheme was approved, McLaren prepared construction documents and specifications and provided construction administration services, including bid support.
