Waterfront & Port

Ballard Marine Construction has an unparalleled depth of experience when it comes to the rehabilitation of waterfronts, ports and piers. Our team has performed thousands of repairs, cathodic improvements, and installations of waterfront structures both locally and worldwide.  We are a certified DENSO and Fox Industries (and other well recognized brands), installer for pile rehabilitation.  Ballard has performed numerous projects that involved cleaning, wrapping, jacketing, and injection of cementitious grout on existing piling.

Ballard Commercial Divers have been certified to perform the specialty welds required for the correct installation of all sizes and types of marine anodes.  Installations have been performed in some of the coldest climates in the world and in extreme environments and depths.

Ballard provides a full array of waterfront services from gangway installation to fender repairs to entire dock installation or replacement.
