ABOUT THE EVENT
Located in harsh marine environments, coastal and waterfront developments require special considerations to ensure resilience over the project’s design life. Material selection, siting considerations, protective coatings, waterproofing detailing, and drainage are all important considerations that require special attention by the design team for these unique projects. The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority’s (WETA) new ferry terminal expansion project in downtown San Francisco is a great example of what a successful waterfront design must consider. This presentation will discuss lessons learned from the project’s design and highlight innovative features employed by the program team in structural material selection, waterproofing strategies, drainage considerations, as well as sea level rise planning.
After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Understand key issues impacting the resiliency of coastal and waterfront developments.
- Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of common structural materials employed in marine environments and implications on permitting and project installation.
- Understand how flooding and sea level rise affect waterfront development design.
- Discuss examples of floodproofing mitigation strategies.
