Armed Forces Memorial

City of Norfolk, Virginia

This project included the preparation of contract documents, specifications, and a cost estimate for the repairs to the concrete riprap and granite stonework retaining wall around the Armed Forces Memorial, due to partial failure. Our design included the installation of sheet piles to properly stabilize the moving elements of this structure. Our design further indicated that the riprap would need to be removed, the granite steps and stone retaining wall removed, and the sheet piling, tieback system, filter fabric, riprap, stone steps, and retaining wall reinstalled. The aesthetics of exterior had to be maintained exactly because the structure is considered copyrighted artwork.
