In October 2012, the fixed docks and breakwater in Trader’s Cove Marina were completely destroyed by Superstorm Sandy. Immediately following the storm, our engineers quickly completed a design to rebuild a more robust and functional marina. The remnants of the existing fixed timber docks were removed and replaced with concrete floating docks, which are more resilient to flooding.
The project included modifying the layout of the marina in order to increase the number of slips and to facilitate larger vessels. The reconstruction of the marina also included the design of a boat ramp for smaller trailered boats. The design of the docks included full service amenities, such as water and electric service to each slip, and composite decking to match the boardwalk on site. The custom floating breakwater dock, which extends along the perimeter of the marina, dampens waves and protects the interior slips of the marina. The steel pipe guide piles are designed for floods in excess of those experienced during Superstorm Sandy. This project was completed under multiple contracts. Our professionals were responsible for design, public bid assistance, and construction administration of the project.
