San Francisco Floating Fire Station 35

Liftech was the lead marine engineering design consultant for this design-build project of a floating fire station in San Francisco.  Liftech designed a steel pier next to The Embarcadero; a steel access ramp between the pier and steel float; a steel float and associated items, such as fender supports and pile collars; and the piling to support the pier and moor the float. 

Fireboats and jet skis moor along the float so the firefighters can quickly respond to emergencies.  Since firefighters will be spending significant amounts of time on the float, including eating and sleeping, the float is designed to limit the amount of motion.
