UBC Marine Construction

UBC Pile Drivers Meet the Call for Our Marine Construction Needs

Building structures around waterways come with unique challenges. Staying competitive in the Marine Construction industry requires constant focus at every step of the project. The need for infrastructure improvements is high and the demand for specialized skills is ever-growing. Having a reliable source for the best trained pile drivers is a key to success in marine construction.

Productivity and Quality

With safety and skills at the center of every Marine Construction job, the UBC’s network of qualified contractors implement procedures to ensure quality — and our Pile Driver workforce gets the job done right, avoiding delays and cost overruns. Our thousands of Pile Drivers enable our contractors to be fully staffed at all times, which allows for quick response to emergencies.

Deep Knowledge, Foundational Skills

Pile Driver members of the UBC must factor in the currents, tides, waves and winds that make Marine Construction a specialized field. UBC Pile Drivers have what it takes to build and repair docks, bridges, wharfs and other marine structures with precision, speed and rigorous safety.

Many Pile Drivers in marine construction complete Seamanship and Commercial Diver Training and Certification coursework through our industry partners — and many complete UBC training in Underwater Welding to help meet high demand.

UBC Programs Make Pile Drivers Jobsite Leaders

The UBC’s Department of Education and Training is unmatched in the industry — and is helping to transform the culture of construction by educating members at all levels as jobsite leaders. Tens of thousands of apprentices and journeymen have completed leadership development programs and gained skills in communications, professionalism and mentoring.

In addition, many UBC contractors and employers have benefited by sending employees to our Foreman Training and 18-month Superintendent Career Training programs. Our investment in leadership education is an investment in the success of your company.

"I was both pleased and impressed during my recent visit to the Eastern District Pile Driving Center. As the demands of our industry continue to evolve, it is critical that we maintain a productive work force that is current with regard to knowledge of means and methods, equipment, safety, and quality standards. I appreciate the commitment and level of effort that the carpenters are putting into the proper training of current and future employees, in both the carpentry and pile driving trades."
