Pier 86 Rehabilitation


HAKS provided construction inspection and procurement/bidding services as a team member on the $50 million rehabilitation of Pier 86 in Manhattan’s Hudson River Park. Located at 12th Avenue and 46th Street, Pier 86 is home to the USS Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. The pier underwent a complete demolition and reconstruction between 2006 and 2008, while the World War II-era aircraft carrier was towed to New Jersey and, later, Staten Island to undergo refurbishments. 

The overall project included construction of a new 782-foot-long, 150-foot-wide military-style pier, along with four stair/elevator towers and park elements. As construction inspector, HAKS approved of the 336 steel pipe piles used to secure the new pier. Limited construction coordination and project management was provided during the dredging process. 

HAKS prepared bid documents, conducted a pre-bid meeting and site visit, and reviewed and analyzed bids. We made a recommendation for awarding the dredging work associated with moving the USS Intrepid prior to pier renovations and oversaw the dredging operation in the field.
