Bulkheads

Marina Pier and Bulkhead Upgrades

Location: Osterville, MA

Completion Date: May, 2017

Project Details: Beacon Marine Construction was hired to perform the work at a local marina in Osterville. We worked closely with the engineer and owner throughout the entire design process to come up with a solution that fit the customer’s needs. The new vinyl bulkhead was installed in a spot that was previously a stone revetment. The work consisted of removing the stone revetment, selective demolition of finger piers, and installation of a new vinyl wall and piers. The new wall  was tied into an existing steel sheetpile wall and required the reconstruction of the finger piers. The sheathing was driven using a vibratory hammer. Deadman were set to add additional load capacity to accommodate cars being parked near the edge of the wall. The project was an overall success and we were able to have the marina ready for he 2017 boating season. 

Timber Bulkhead – Centerville

LOCATION: Centerville, Cape Cod, MA

PROJECT COMPLETION: January, 2017

DESCRIPTION: Construction of a 380′ timber bulkhead on the Centerville River. The project required working closely with the homeowner and landscape construction company to coordinate delivery of materials and equipment in tight quarters. The owner originally contracted a limited scope, but were so happy with the installation of the wall that they decided to build the wall to the full extent of their permit. The end result was a beautiful wall that was a valuable addition to the property.

Timber Bulkhead Little Island, Osterville

Location: North Bay, Osterville, MA

Completion date: April 2016

Details: Construction of a timber bulkhead stretched approximately 220 ft. along the beach at a private residence in Osterville. The bulkhead was tied into a stone wall at one side of the property and a neighboring timber bulkhead on the other side. Tight access through the yard required high tide delivery of materials and equipment. The client was pleased with the finished product as well as the quick construction timeline.

Vinyl Bulkhead / Seawall Centerville River

Location: Craigville, MA

Project Completion: February, 2016

Details: Installation of a new vinyl bulkhead on the Centerville River. Removal and disposal of existing stone bulkhead. The new bulkhead consisted of approximately 130′ of vinyl sheet piling supported by 12″ timber piling. The cap on the bulkhead was built using AZEK matching the ramps and floats at the property. The original stone wall was removed revealing another stone wall that had been buried. Working from the barge, Beacon’s crew had to remove approximately 200 tons of material before we could begin driving the piling.

New Timber Bulkhead Eel River, Osterville

Location: Osterville, MA
Project Completion: January 2016
Details: Installation of an approximately 305+ ft. timber bulkhead to combat erosion at the base of a slope. There was an existing bulkhead in the middle of the site to which the new structure was tied into. Site access was difficult. All equipment and materials were mobilized by barges and work skiffs. Beacon Marine has built dozens of seawalls similar to this using both timber and vinyl sheeting throughout Cape Cod.
