Auburn, Wash. — Throughout the year the Elliott Bay Seawall project has received multiple awards for design, leadership, environmental, sustainability, emergency construction, engineering and management. Oldcastle Precast Auburn, Wash., supplied the custom precast structures for this project.
The $210M seawall project made extensive use of unique modular precast concrete components, which significantly helped speed up construction time, reduced project costs, and minimized impacts to adjacent properties and businesses during construction. The new seawall features precast custom designed face panels, habitat shelves, superstructure “Z” segments and precast light penetrating sidewalk panels to promote and improve marine habitat underneath the 3,500-foot structure.
