The Deep Cove Pier at Washington County Community College Boat School provides deep water access to Cobscook Bay, where tides are 25 feet high. Kleinschmidt provided design, permitting and contract documents for structural repair of a 400-foot concrete pier completed in 2003. The work included demolition, pile replacement, structural bracing and reinforcement, floats, gangway, and electrical system design. Due to budget limitations the project was studied extensively to identify the lowest cost. The work was ultimately phased in multiple stages that were implemented as the funds became available.
