LOCATION: Dennis COMPLETION DATE: August 2023 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This project was quite a challenge. The crew found themselves battling twists and turns down a steep embankment. They removed brush, set the posts and stringers, assembled treads, and installed IPE decking and handrails to create this exquisite project. The homeowner requested direct access to the waterfront, …
Our construction crews wrapped up this project for a neighborhood association in Falmouth. This project included a variety of services including invasive vegetation removal, embankment grading and stabilization, stairs supported by helical piers driven into a bank, and construction of a new timber embankment staircase. All work on this project was self-performed and ahead of schedule.
Our maintenance crew gave this embankment staircase in Eastham a major facelift. The crew demoed the existing beach stairs and built new from the ground up. The stairs were built with all new pressure treated lumber and galvanized fasteners. The staircase includes two benches and the installation of the existing dock box. This update will give the homeowner beach access for many years to come.
Our construction crews were back in Dennis and built another large embankment star right next door to a previous winter project. This project is designed to match the stair next door and includes a large landing at the top with two large sitting benches, a large deck on top of the stone revetment, and built with all IPE decking and handrail. This stair also includes a two-piece aluminum staircase that can be quickly removed and stored in the event of a storm.
This project has it all. Stairs bringing access to a private dock and an elevated sitting area that looks over the bay. These stairs were a complicated project as both helical piers and diamond piers were used to support every post. With twice the power, these stairs will be around for a long time. Also, a platform with a built in bench provides a great spot to take in the views of the Chatham waterfront.
This project was a total upgrade for this property’s beachfront. This project included 180 feet of revetment reconstruction using a combination of the existing armor stone and new armor stone, and a 4’ increase in the top of wall elevation. In addition to the fortification of the wall, 2,200 cubic yards of beach compatible nourishment sand was installed to provide a buffer area between the seawall and the ocean. The stone groin projecting out into the water were completely reconstructed to help retain the sand from laterals erosion. Lastly, an embankment staircase and deck area were upgraded and reconstructed using wedge anchor to anchor the structure to the new revetment and finished with IPE Hardwood decking and handrail material.
This new embankment staircase was recently constructed in Orleans. With newly installed jute netting to prevent dune erosion, this staircase was constructed with two platforms and built out of all pressure treated deck treads, stringers, handrail, and 4×4 uprights anchored by diamond piers into the embankment.
