Liftech designed a 78-foot-long steel float as a replacement float at the Clay Street Ferry Terminal in Oakland, California.
The project had an accelerated schedule. The previous float needed to be removed and the new float installed in a single weekend. Liftech worked with Manson to provide a design that accommodated the schedule and allowed for a relatively quick and easy float installation. The float design also needed to accommodate future piles, which will be larger than the four existing piles, so the pile collars are removable and adjustable.
Three different ferry types access either side of the float. Liftech collaborated with Manson and their subcontractors to lay out the aluminum walkway with six hinged and mechanically adjustable ramps to provide this access.
