Reactive Business Development is Costing You More than You Thought

It’s always a joy to see projects come to completion, but in-person ribbon-cuttings feel extra special after the last year and a half. Our team recently attended the opening of the shiny and new Dock #5 in Newport, Oregon, which was a great success thanks to Port of Newport's leadership and our permitting team, who worked hard to make the project happen this year during a limited winter in-water work window. We couldn’t be happier with the final result, which replaced an aging but integral pier used by the local commercial fishing industry. Way to go, team!

Check out some action shots of our People Who Make It Happen! Some of our inspection experts recently completed a dock inspection for the City and Borough of Sitka, Alaska. One of the main docks in town is experiencing wear and tear as well as other deterioration associated with the saltwater and marine environment, so our team took measurements, inspected the land and marine sides of the structure, inspected connections, and observed divers completing the underwater portion of the inspection.
