Soil erosion is the process by which the surface of the land is worn away by the action of natural forces such as wind, water, and gravity. The inherent erosion potential of an area is determined by four principal factors: soil characteristics such as its permeability and erodibility, vegetative cover, topography, and climate (rainfall). The amount of erosion is dependent on a combination of these factors. Additional considerations that are particularly relevant for South Florida are storm surge and runoff. Over time, many waterside properties begin to suffer from erosion. Left unattended, this reduction of soil can result in a water breach, and potential land collapse. In order to allow for adequate drainage, SMD installs a weep hole draining system in Seawalls, piers and embankment walls to allow for necessary drainage to reduce water build up and pressure behind the embankment.

ECOncrete®

ECOncrete leads the world in bio-enhancing concrete technology that is the first to provide both superior strength and ecological benefits.

Our trailblazing products are found in ports and waterfronts across the globe yielding excellent results. From now on, all high-performance concrete infrastructure such as sea walls, breakwaters, and harbors can be more durable over a longer lifespan while improving water quality and enhancing biological diversity.

The patented technology incorporates three proven science-based elements that work in synergy: bio-enhancing concrete compositions, complex surface textures, and science-based designs.

The company has a line of science-based, bio-enhancing products including:

· Tide Pool Armor

·  ECO Sea Walls

·  ECO Piles & Jackets

·  ECO Armor Blocks

·  ECO Mats

·  Bio-Active Wall System

·  Site specific, custom made designs

Basalt rebar

Sea Me Dive uses Basalt rebar as an alternative to steel rebar. Basalt Rebar is a glass state basalt fiber in epoxy, spiral wound, quarts coated rebar. It was originally designed as a non-rusting alternative to steel for marine construction and roadway sections exposed to salt and freeze-thaw on bridges. These products are based on only one single homogenous component, “natural volcanic basal lava rock” processed into continuous fiber tendons. As a result, these products are at or very near carbon footprint neutral. Rebar is only 1/5th the weight and over 2.5 times stronger in tension than regular steel.

We are currently working with local providers and incorporating the rebars in our projects.

University of Miami

Sea Me Dive enjoys a collegial relationship with the local Universities in south Florida. Their quest for innovative solutions to environmental challenges coupled with SMD’s hands-on ability to implement their designs in the field results in a win-win situation for everybody- including the eco-minded client. We are currently following the groundbreaking research out of the University of Miami’s Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering. They are developing a saltwater-concrete that will replace the need for the potable water that is standard in construction today. The ability to save freshwater and utilize readily available seawater is revolutionary in the field of construction and will have long-reaching implications.

We are currently working with local providers and incorporating the rebars in our projects.
