AGM Marine Contractors Inc. of Mashpee, Mass., began construction of a new pier facility at USCG Group Woods Hole, November 23. The USCG Facilities Design and Construction Center
(Atlantic) of Norfolk, Va., will manage the $2.9 million project. Construction should be complete by late summer 1999.
Maquire Group of Foxboro, Mass., designed the improvements, which include replacement of more than 1,000 ft. of deteriorating sheet pile bulkhead and replacement of a 10,000 sq. ft. concrete wharf with backfill and new pavement. Their design also called for new shore tie utility stations and pier fender systems for two 110-ft. patrol boats, an 87-ft. patrol boat, and a visiting 110-ft. patrol boat or 175-ft. buoy tender.
