Bulkheads

Home > Services > Marine Engineering > Bulkheads

Whether protection of a valuable structure from the forces of the ocean or stabilization of a shoreline along the waterfront at a marina is required, Cummins | Cederberg can provide a functional and economical structure design. Strategic placement of a seawall can be utilized to deflect wave impacts and limit over-topping, or provide local protection from erosion. Bulkheads not only serve to stabilize the shoreline, but also provide the connectivity between the wet slips and the upland marina area. Cummins | Cederberg designs seawalls and bulkheads in a variety of materials, including concrete, steel and synthetics, depending on the intended application and surrounding environment.

Bulkheads and seawalls constructed in the harsh salt-water environment are not only subject to corrosion, but also scour, vessel impact and mooring loads, wave forces, and over-topping. Performing routine inspections and preventative maintenance can substantially extend the service life of these structures and help to prevent untimely structural failure. Cummins | Cederberg performs above and below-water evaluations of structures and provides practical repair and maintenance recommendations based on industry standard specifications.
