Our Projects - Owen Sound, Ont.

Harbour Rehabilitation:

Riggs Engineering was retained to provide a routine detailed inspection of the Owen Sound harbour structures and identified that ╩║Structure 2╩║ had deteriorated due to damaged piles and lack of structural bearing of the superstructure. The bearing issues relate to a combination of deteriorated concrete and timber pile tops.

Riggs Engineering provided repair alternatives as follows:

- Encapsulating the existing timber piles with fiber reinforced plastic wrap.

- Replacing the damaged bracing system.

- Reinforcing split timber piles with steel banding.

- Installing permanent steel forms as part of the concrete restoration.
