RACE provided professional engineering services to the City of Bridgeport related to the assessment, repair alternatives analysis and design of a replacement structure for the Pleasure Beach Pier. The existing pier had exhibited substantial deterioration based on the above and below water inspections performed by RACE. The replacement of the structure was recommended for the intended future use as the sole means of public access to this unique site.  RACE prepared detailed design drawings and specifications for the replacement structure and prepared applications to State and Federal Regulatory agencies.   RACE was honored to receive the 2015 CT Society of Civil Engineers Achievement in Engineering (ACE) Award of Merit for Structural Design of the Pleasure Beach Pier.
