DESIGN-CONSTRUCTION OF A BREAKWATER/PIER STRUCTURE AT U.S. NAVAL STATION EVERETT

The $25 million combination Breakwater/Pier structure was constructed in two phases for the United States Navy Homeport facility at Naval Station Everett in the state of Washington. Precast/prestressed concrete was used cost effectively for the piles, deck panels and utilidor lids for the pier and vertical panel elements for the breakwater structure. The purpose of the article is to present the conceptual design, structural design considerations for the breakwater, model testing, and construction highlights of the project, concentrating in particular on the precast concrete elements.
