Marine geotechnical engineering expertise fortifies the USS Constitution’s berth for generations

200+ years

estimated lifetime for our rehabilitated berth


  • Haley & Aldrich’s geotechnical team helped the U.S. Navy restore the century-old berth of the USS Constitution — the oldest commissioned naval vessel still on the water.
  • Our team’s marine geotech engineering skills and innovative approach saved our client money and time while protecting the integrity of the site’s history — a challenge that required elevated expertise and historical research.
  • Drawing on historical architectural plans, we designed and built around the original berth while making the rehabilitated structure strong enough to carry the ship for the next two centuries.
