Bair Island Trail

Bair Island Trail


We built 2,000 feet of bay trail along the margin of the San Francisco Bay.  Job challenges included reconstructing portions of the trail below high tide, rainy winter months, two king tide events, work atop a narrow muddy levee, and pickleweed habitat.  The completed project included benches and other park amenities.

Shoreline Boat Ramp

Constructing the boat ramp first required dewatering a portion of the lagoon.  WRC deployed the 150 foot long by 6 foot diameter aquadam and then removed the water using several 4 inch pumps.  The boat ramp consisted of prefabricated concrete panels placed using a large crane and poured in place section.  All work was performed within a quiet residential area and adjacent to a park.

Armory Demolition

Armory Demolition


The San Lorenzo school district leased this property to the California National Guard for over 50 years. After abating lead based paint and asbestos containing building materials, we demolished this largely concrete structure and removed all foundation and footings. The structure included walls up to 18 inches thick, which were originally designed to withstand a nuclear blast within 1 mile of the structure. Following demolition, we graded the site to allow the school district to begin construction. Because we also have environmental consulting capabilities, the client engaged us to assist with the closure of old USTs at the site.
