Arcadis, CH2M Bag San Francisco Seawall Resiliency Project

Arcadis yesterday announced that the Port of San Francisco has selected CH2M in partnership with Arcadis to lead the design and engineering for the 10-year Seawall Resiliency Project. The total fee for the contract amounts to $40 million.

In an approximately equal partnership, Arcadis and CH2M will jointly share management of the project. Arcadis will lead risk analysis, coastal engineering and modeling while CH2M will provide marine and structural engineering services for the seawall and other structures.

The aim of the San Francisco Seawall Resiliency Project is to fortify 3.5 miles of a century-old sea wall protecting the city’s most treasured waterfront from Fisherman’s Wharf to Mission Creek near AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team.

Arcadis brings its Dutch heritage of addressing coastal resiliency and its broad experience in civil engineering and coastal protection in urban settings, most recently in New York City and in New Orleans after major hurricanes. This contract win strengthens Arcadis’ water management position on the U.S. west coast,” said Peter Wijsman, Arcadis’ City Executive to San Francisco.

The seawall supports historic piers, wharves, and buildings including the Ferry Building. It underpins the Embarcadero Promenade which welcomes millions of people each year and provides flood protection to San Francisco’s Financial District and other neighborhoods.

The seawall also serves as a critical emergency response and recovery area, and it supports multiple municipal transportation systems and utility networks.
