Shell Point Public Boating Facility

Wakulla County, FL

A New Gateway to the Gulf of Mexico

We designed and permitted a reinforced concrete boat ramp and floating dock system in a salt water environment for a public boating facility located on the Gulf of Mexico. We designed the boat ramp using push slab/cast-in-place methods and anchored the 1,600-square-foot floating dock system with treated timber piles and connected it to the ramp with aluminum gangplanks. Additionally, we performed construction engineering inspection services to deliver a quality finished product for the county.

Improvements also included the design of a new associated parking area, concrete sidewalks, stormwater management facility, landscaping, irrigation, lighting, fencing, gates, signage, striping, water, and sewer and electrical utilities. A future second phase was planned during the design and permitting of the project, which involves the construction of an elevated ship store building and fueling station. We are assisting the county in procuring grant funding to construct this future phase.
