Liftech worked with Manson Construction Company as part of their design-build team to design the 426 foot long wharf and access bridges; a 955 foot long sheet pile sea wall, mooring platforms, and walkways; and longshoreman building for the Port of Redwood City. The moment frame and thin deck of the wharf structure limit the seismic forces and number of piles required. The project was over a million dollars below budget and was completed months ahead of schedule. Click image to view gallery.

At more than 1,000 feet long, 250 feet wide, and 170 feet tall each, two blimp hangars constructed in the 1940s at Moffett Field are among the world’s largest clear-span timber structures. One of these hangars had significant damage to many of its timber truss arches, and the damage was progressing along the length of the hangar to the extent that there was concern the hangar, or portions of it, could collapse. Power retained Liftech to design systems to stabilize and provide access so Power could safely perform repairs.
