At Millennium Walk Apartments, NuPump was hired by Bozzuto Enterprises for the construction of a boat ramp along the Schuylkill River for the Conshohocken Fire Department. A cofferdam was constructed in the river, and the proposed location for the ramp was dewatered. Nearly 1000 tons of material was excavated from the steep embankment to provide the grade of the boat ramp.
Sub-grade materials were installed and compacted to provide a firm base for the precast concrete panels weighing over 4 tons each. Each panel was constructed with special grooving to provide proper drainage and traction for tow vehicles, and stairs were installed adjacent to the ramp for pedestrian access. Large rip rap and turf reinforcement mats were installed to stabilize and provide protection for the remaining embankment.
