The MPP engineer involved with the project provided structural design for a 1400 LF FEMA V-Zone flood protection tied back steel sheet pile seawall to replace an existing failing wall. The analysis and design included provisions for object impact while traveling at wave speed.

The wall construction was part of a 49 acre mixed use water front redevelopment project at the former Naval Reserve Training Center in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.
