Long Island Pier Construction
Located in the middle of the Boston Harbor in Massachusetts, Long Island is part of Boston, as well as part of the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. The island was likely used by the Native Americans. The Long Island Pier is currently being used as an aid to navigation and for park purposes.
Completing a process that begun in 2002 to expand public access to Long Island, CASHMAN was responsible for the construction of a permanent pier on this Boston Harbor island.
- Both concept and initial design were performed by Jay Cashman, Inc.
- The 455-foot-long pier was constructed from Inverset slabs recycled from Boston’s “Big Dig” construction project.
- The entire pier was clad with IPE wood.
- CASHMAN drove fifty-four 18-inch piles and installed all structural steel headers and bracing.
- Assembled decking members, applied IPE cladding, and attached utilities to pier sections in a nearby work yard while piles were being driven.
- The entire job on the island was completed on schedule in three months.
