Vilano Pier Floating Dock
Vilano Beach, florida
MDG engineered design specifications for a 100-foot floating dock perpendicular to the Vilano Pier to allow boaters to access the Vilano Town Center. This project was especially challenging because the dock location is subjected to substantial boat traffic, large wind-generated waves, and extreme tidal currents.
Teaming with other consultants, MDG reviewed the existing site conditions that would impact design and construction, including proposed loading conditions on the floating docks. Using these design requirements, developed performance specifications for the floating dock system and gangways, ensuring function and longevity. MDG, through its sub-consultants also conducted a bathymetric survey and water analyses to complete the project’s design and permitting requirements.
