AAC worked together with Schnitzer and PND Engineers to install a new OPEN CELL SHEET PILE ® dock system at their Burbank, Washington scrap yard. Schnitzer Steel uses the current dock to load steel on to barges that get delivered to their Portland scrap yard to be processed.
The project involved driving 350 new sheet piles that make up the OPEN CELL ® system. AAC removed the old system that had failed over the years. This process involved excavating and dredging a total of 8,500 cy of spoil material that was hauled and contained onsite. Installation of top cap, bull rail, concrete, and bollards completed the project.
The project was performed while Schnitzer Steel maintained full operations. AAC allowed Schnitzer Steel to load out scrap steel onto barges multiple times without incurring schedule delays. Substantial completion by the end March 2009 was crucial to keep Schnitzer's scrap in production.
