The existing timber pier at Keyport Yacht Club (KYC) was severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. The storm damaged not only the existing pier, which extends into the Raritan Bay for 300 feet, but also the adjacent parking lot. It also caused severe ground soil erosion.
Colliers Engineering & Design performed emergency engineering, including inspections and subsequent structural design to replace the entire pier. Our services included timber pile evaluation and design, as well as bulkhead analysis. Our professionals performed a land survey to provide an historic record of the pier as required by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. KYC had numerous obligations to several yachting clubs and was required to replace the entire pier and put the new one into service on a highly accelerated design/construction schedule. The pier was replaced and fully operational by the beginning of the boating season in May 2013.
