Pier - Naples

Naples Pier, Naples, FL

Kelly Brothers was contracted to restore the City of Naples’ 120 year old landmark pier using heavy timber framing and IPE hardwood decking. The renowned pier is 12’ x 1000’ long and has more than 1,800 boards. The pier substructure and decking were pre-fabricated in 30’ sections at our site in Fort Myers, then loaded on our barges and shipped to the construction site in Naples. The demolition and reconstruction work was done  using barges and a crane, taking off the old decking in sections and then installing the pre-fabricated sections. Work also included the installation of new electrical and plumbing services along with renovations to the concession area and multiple covered fish cleaning stations. Over one million tourists visit the Naples Pier each year.

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.
