Massport


Problem:
Massport short for Massachusetts Port Authority put out a tender for flood products to protect various utility buildings by the airport, and harbor in Boston. Sandy was not a problem in Boston, but had it changed direction it could have been. This barrier is part of a major effort to their part to never flood again.

Procedure:
The key to AquaFence with any urban environment is to have minimal impact to the hardscape or building design. AquaFence is perfect for a retrofitting as it does not require major changes to either 

 

Solution:
All of the concerns were solved in both projects to onsite review of the property and several meetings with engineers to find a solution that would be effective and at the same time nor disturb normal course of business unless the storm approached.

Result/Benefits:
Can withstand another surge like Sandy and still be operational when the water recedes without any casualties
