Over the course of 2020-2021, Brice Engineering together with team partners Appledore Marine Engineering, LLC and Global Diving & Salvage, Inc., worked collaboratively with the US Air Force and US Army Corps of Engineers to address extensive storm-related damage to a fuel pier located on the remote Shemya Island in Alaska.
The fuel pier is essential to the continuous operations of Eareckson Air Station whose mission is focused on aviation safety and national security. Its repair was time critical.
Through a fast-track design build contract, this fuel pier was successfully designed and repaired by leveraging the combined expertise of a construction/logistics firm (Brice), waterfront facilities engineering firm (Appledore), and underwater construction firm (Global Diving).
An approach that proved the very value of the design-build project delivery method employed for this unique and remote military installation.
