A large portion of the Colman dock terminal consists of a timber deck and timber piles. These piles are under continuous attack from marine borers, requiring frequent maintenance and replacement, complicated by 24-hour terminal operations that cannot be interrupted.
The terminal is also located in a highly earthquake-prone region, and both the existing deck and building have severe structural deficiencies under earthquake conditions.
BergerABAM's waterfront design team provided the client with a conceptual design that met modern earthquake guidelines and resulted in maximum long-term value, while minimizing disruptions to facility operations during construction.
