P1040515RT Group, Inc. (RTG) was retained by the Quonset Development Corporation (QDC) to design and obtain permits for the construction of approximately 1,500 linear feet of new steel sheet pile bulkhead. The existing anchored steel sheet pile bulkhead was constructed in the mid-1940’s by the U.S. Navy as a part of the Quonset Naval Air Station. Several sections of the 70-year-old bulkhead had deteriorated significantly and failed in some locations. Accordingly, RTG was tasked with completing the design and permitting of a new steel sheet pile bulkhead and anchor wall system to be installed directly in front of the existing one. Design elements included the steel sheet piles; a tie-back system; a bulkhead repair section; a timber fender system; mooring cleats; steel and concrete caps; and the permanent abandonment of several existing utilities. Construction for the project was completed in 2016.
