ORN Nets Alaska Seawall Project
Orion Marine Group (ORN), a heavy civil marine contractor headquartered in Houston, Texas, yesterday announced a contract award of approximately $42 million.
The company’s Heavy Civil Marine Construction segment was recently awarded a contract for a seawall reconstruction project in Alaska by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Construction tasks will include removal and on-site disposal of the existing stone seawall, recovery of competent stone for reuse in the new seawall, quarrying stone in a permitted on-site quarry for use in the new seawall, and construction of the new seawall above and below the mean high tide line.
The project will begin in the 2nd quarter of 2016 and last approximately 4 years, with work being performed seasonally only in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of each year.
