For thousands of years, the Gulf of Mexico has battered the coastline of Southwest Florida. The relentless pummeling waves require coastal stretches to have engineered sea walls in order to prevent major soil erosion and loss of existing infrastructure. Such is the case in North Redington Beach, where a new coastal sea wall is being constructed to protect the Tides Condominiums.
The project called for the installation of 132 helical tie-back anchors piles to sustain a new vinyl seawall. Coastal projects require sensitive environmental planning and selection of the right anchoring solutions to yield consistent, reliable results.
The foresight of Coastal Foundation Solutions to utilize both the experience and products offered by Foundation Technologies paid off with positive results. Our experienced crew enabled the projected plan for pile installation to be completed within the stated schedule. With these expert results, the Tides Condominium coastline will be protected for generations to come.
We wish to extend our sincere appreciation to Roy Benton, of Benton and Sons, for his continued dedication for using our services on complex coastal projects. We would also like to than the coastal engineer on this project, Humiston & Moore Coastal Engineers, along with the structural engineer, Ruber Clarson Consulting. Excellent job by all parties!
