The Ocean City Music Pier, in Ocean City New Jersey dates to 1928 when construction began to create a new concert hall for the community after a large portion of the boardwalk was lost to a fire in 1927.
The concrete support structure under this historic pier spends half of every day submerged in the Atlantic Ocean during high tides. As such, by the turn of the new millennia the concrete columns and structural slab were experiencing significant deterioration.
MPG was selected to perform concrete restoration including full depth slab repairs; partial depth overhead slab repairs; beam repairs; crack repairs; and column repairs. The four outmost columns were completely replaced due to the severity of deterioration.
MPG’s crews had to manage and work around the tide schedule, being careful to have all materials, tools and equipment completely removed from the work area before each high tide.
