MARINE

EARTHWORKS has permitted hundreds of joint use, individual, and community docks, marinas, boardwalks, and other recreational maritime community attractions. Our staff stays updated on ever changing State and Federal permitting regulation and have used this expertise to assist our clients with design of various marinas and docks. We have also helped numerous individuals improve existing structures by applying for modification permits and repair maintenance activities. Being actively involved with helping our clients, insure their investments for many years to come.

Belle Isle Marina

EARTHWORKS was retained to assist in the dredging and reconstruction of Belle Isle Marina in Georgetown, SC. We obtained environmental permits for approximately 136,000 CY of sediment that was hydraulically dredged as well as permits to reconfigure the existing slips into a new design. The change to all floating dock systems allowed easier access to boats during all tide stages. The upgraded electrical systems, fueling systems, and fire suppression systems ensure that all marina customers have a world class facility to come home to.

Murrells Inlet Bike Bridge

EARTHWORKS provided engineering support to Georgetown County for the design, permitting and construction management of a new bike bridge over the Murrells Inlet marsh. This project consisted of approximately 350 LF of timber bridge on driven timber piles and 383 LF of pervious concrete pavement adjacent to the existing asphalt roadway. This project was successfully completed and serves as a vital link between the bike lanes in Murrells Inlet and the bike paths that extend to Litchfield Beach.

Socastee Creek Bridge

EARTHWORKS worked with a site developer to provide access to a waterfront site across a creek adjacent to the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. This project required wetland delineation, permitting, survey, hydraulic and hydrologic modeling, structural and civil engineering services to obtain all regulatory approvals for the bridge crossing. An investigation of the Socastee Creek drainage basin was conducted to determine the potential impact to the 100 year flood elevation if an access bridge was constructed. Bridge Structural Design and Civil Site Plans were also prepared by EARTHWORKS to complete this project.

Vereen Memorial Gardens Boardwalk

EARTHWORKS was responsible for the environmental and structural design and state and federal permitting for the marsh walkways and access piers at Vereen Memorial Gardens located adjacent to the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Little River, SC. EARTHWORKS provided construction drawings and bid specifications for the marsh boardwalks containing approximately 1200 linear feet of elevated wooden walkways, 600 linear feet of grade level concrete walkways, gazebo structures, and a fishing pier and access stairs to the shell beach.
