CVMNEXT repaired two sea walls for two private clients in Rye, NY. Storm surge caused by Hurricane Sandy washed away sections of existing rubble stone walls on properties facing Long Island Sound, causing extensive damage to the grounds and homes they were meant to protect. Spanning 195 feet and 440 feet of beach, respectively, each sea wall section is 24” thick and stands roughly four feet tall. Comprised of a concrete beam with an exterior stone cladding, the wall is reinforced every 10 feet by a 24”-diameter concrete pile anchored by steel. The piles were designed to resist the waves during a hurricane, which was calculated as a static force using the United States Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Engineering Manual.
