Berth 22 Replacement, Port of Oakland
Working for Manson Construction, Silverado demolished Berth 22 at the Port of Oakland to make way for a berth with a deeper draft.
Demolition of the 1,000 foot long concrete and wood timber wharf, consisted of the removal of a 100,000 square feet concrete wharf, and processing over 2,500 piles. Creosote treated wood timbers were removed, piece by piece and then sold to a reuse company. Approximately 36,000 tons of concrete and asphalt generated from demolition was crushed onsite into class II base rock and sold for reuse on the project site.
Silverado Contractors then performed the mass excavation of 20,000 cubic yards of soil for the construction of the new wharf.
Critical path demolition work was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.
