This project was for the design and fabrication of a floating fire station in San Francisco. Liftech was the lead marine design consultant for this design-build project and 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 collards; and the piling to support the pier and moor the float.
Fireboats and jet skis will 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.
