Project Spotlight – City Marina Seawall & Boat Dock Improvements (Delray Beach, FL)
City Marina is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway in Delray Beach, FL, and is part of the Marina Historic District. It has been in operation for over 80 years and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2014.
Due to the aggressive saltwater environment, extreme high-tides, and waves from passing boats, the City Marina experienced severe damage over the years. To address these concerns, WGI assisted the City by performing a structural assessment of the seawall, marginal docks, and finger piers.
A report was then presented to the City of Delray Beach outlining the condition assessment and recommended corrective actions to the marina seawall and boat dock.
In addition, WGI prepared construction documents for repair/replacement of the concrete seawall and cap and for replacement of the finger piers at the Delray Beach Marina.
WGI assisted the City with the public bidding of the project including the attendance at the pre-bid meetings, responding to requests for information, review of bids, and preparation of a bid recommendation letter to the City.
All existing wooden piers were removed and replaced with new floating finger piers. The seawall cap was raised to account for future sea-level rise and marine vessel wave action.
Survey services included researching public records for plats, NGS and county control, survey information to locate, check and reference horizontal and vertical control, and to locate all improvement within 25 feet of seawall edge, including, but not limited to, seawall, finger piers, pilings, trees, buildings, sidewalks, light poles, visible utilities, and adjacent seawall waterway soundings at 50-foot intervals.
In addition, decorative and security features, enhancements to the landscaping and sidewalks, state-of-the-art WI-FI communications, improvements to the existing Marina building, and two new pavilions were constructed.
On February 19th, 2021, City Commissioners, City staff, and residents came together for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the beautiful and historic City Marina. You can read more about the marina and the ribbon-cutting ceremony on the City of Delray Beach website.
