RACE was contracted to design, solicit bids and perform construction inspections for the rehabilitation of the pier damaged in Hurricane Irene. Due to the rapid project timeline, RACE coordinated several pre-application meetings with regulatory agencies to reduce permit review periods.  In addition, RACE developed design drawings and bid documents during the permit review time.  During construction RACE performed detailed construction inspections required by the City of Bridgeport Building Department.  RACE filed a Statement of Special Inspections detailing compliance of the constructed pier to the construction documents.
