Pier - Boca Grande

Kelly Brothers (KBI) demolished the existing 2,900 sq. ft. fishing pier and constructed a 10’ x 160’ long access dock with a 50’ x 18’ terminal platform, and a five-step mooring platform. All of the demolition, material staging, and reconstruction work was completed off of KBI’s 30’ x 120’ barge due to limited access to the jobsite via land. The new structure was constructed to endure the South Florida elements with large 4” x 16” cap boards, 3” x 12” stringers, and Durasleeve wrapped 12” wood pilings. In addition, “Mother Nature Resistant” WearDeck composite decking was used for the deck and handrails. The entire project took nine weeks to complete.

What our Clients are Saying

Congratulations to the team for a great project. The KBI crew was outstanding. It is rare that a crew completes a dredge project without the need for a punch list at the end.  Thanks to Jake, Travis, and especially to Raul and his crew.

What our Clients are Saying

Kelly Brothers was commissioned to construct a meandering 1,200 lineal foot elevated boardwalk, through our environmentally sensitive wetland. Our goal was to construct an elevated boardwalk and shell paths through this coastal habitat while respecting the mangrove forest, salt marsh, as well as the oak hammock uplands. The chorography technique Kelly Brothers created was truly impressive. As a result, there was no disturbance or destruction to any part of the surrounding area.

What our Clients are Saying

KBI was very cooperative in developing solutions to an unforeseen subsurface condition that occurred during installation of the piling. They negotiated the extra
work compensation fairly, and they proceeded with the work with no delays to the project.
