Shipyard Marina Embankment Construction & Reinforcement

The north side of the marina basin was experiencing heavy erosion on the raised embankment. The shipyard needed an urgent solution for the shoring up of 160 linear feet of embankment and the work had to be carried out while normal shipyard operations were in process.

We constructed a concrete riprap retaining wall using 32 tons of concrete bags and 1,500’ linear steel rebar to reinforce the retaining structure. The wall was further reinforced with adjacent stagger walls plus 14’X1” steel tie back into concrete Deadman boxes. The lower section of the retaining structure was fitted with 4” PVC pipes and Mirafi fabric to allow hydrostatic pressure release from the upland side.

When a drill rig was overturned and submerged in the everglades water, we were called to place steel slings and help with the recovery. Mission was successfully completed and although we like challenges, we hired The Gator Boys star Paul Bedard to watch our backs from friendly alligators swimming around.

Residential Dock Construction in Miami Beach

A stunning Miami home with a breathtaking view of the bay had an old and failing dock that need some TLC. The frame was still strong and viable, but the top decking was worn and had to go.

We replaced 2,000 Sq Feet of decking with new marine grade 2″X6″ rounded decking. The hardware connecting cross beams were replaced with S’S brackets and all bolt heads and bolt threads were rust treated with Life Guard rust converter & primer followed by a heavy coat of Coal Tar Epoxy. Wherever possible we work with the client and try to save the existing infrastructure but in this case two of the marine pilings were too badly damaged to use and had to be replaced.

Once all this was completed, the client decided to add a couple of Candock jet ski floating docks which we assembled and installed as well.
