McLaren Engineering Group worked with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) to redevelop Port Newark’s Berth 3 Wharf to full serviceability. The new berth was designed and reconstructed to meet PANYNJ’s high standards for quality, safety, durability and reliability. McLaren’s expertise in waterfront structural design, constructability and construction administration/inspection contributed significantly to this efficient, cost-effective design.
McLaren provided structural design services and prepared final design contract documents for the replacement of Berth 3 and the adjacent culvert structure. The firm also designed the new floating docks and worked with the PANYNJ to advise on the appropriate choice of a floating dock and anchorage system. McLaren provided a solution for Berth 3 that tie into adjacent berths. This solution limited disruption to the structural integrity of the adjacent wharves, both during and after construction.
