Taylor Engineering provides innovative design approaches to overcome engineering challenges and environmental constraints inherent to the dynamic marine environment. We provide both public and private clients a full range of engineering services for design, development, and construction of new marina, dock, and pier projects as well as experience in observation, assessment, evaluation, and renovation design for existing facilities. Our services range from feasibility studies to planning, permitting, design, and construction. We leverage our focused expertise to provide the full range of environmental, coastal, civil, and structural engineering services necessary to provide a comprehensive and cost-effective approach to project design. Please visit our project gallery to view a variety of marinas, docks, and piers projects. A few project examples include
Taylor Engineering prepared engineering design drawings and specifications for this public park that lies inside Jupiter Inlet. Project features include 700 linear feet of vinyl sheet pile bulkhead, concrete pile-supported day-use timber docks, dredging, riprap shoreline protection, and an offshore natural stone reef to enclose and protect a recreational snorkel area. In addition to visitor dock facilities, the project provides fixed docks to moor a life-rescue boat and a law enforcement vessel, as well as a floating dock to serve as a water taxi terminal.
Taylor Engineering designed, permitted, and administered the construction contract for a public beach parking structure along the Gulf of Mexico coast repeatedly damaged by tropical storms and hurricanes. The project included construction of a single-level concrete parking structure supported by 181 prestressed concrete piles, installation of a sheet pile upland retaining bulkhead, and relocation of roadside utilities.
Taylor Engineering, as a subcontractor, helped the City of West Palm Beach design, permit, and construct a series of floating docks for Waterfront Commons, the centerpiece of the city’s downtown redevelopment program for the Lake Worth Lagoon waterfront. These floating docks, with additional design elements that include seating areas, planting areas, and public art, bring the waterfront park’s theme into the surrounding marine environment.
