Tin City, Naples, FL
Kelly Brothers was the construction team responsible for the waterfront restoration of Tin City after Hurricane Irma caused massive seawall and boardwalk damage at this historical restaurant and shopping complex. The project started with the demolition of the failed seawall and boardwalk. The new 392 LF of seawall was constructed as a resilient H-Pile Combi-Wall. Steel H-piles were drilled deep into rock, steel sheet piles were driven into the rock, all topped with concrete cap. The seawall was engineered to cantilever on its own; independent of tie backs. Zinc anodes were welded onto the steel sheet piles below the water line. Over 1,900 sq. ft. of new IPE boardwalk was installed, supported seaside by the concrete cap and landward by new pressure treated pilings driven into the land. Over 400 LF of hand railing was also installed. Two mooring facilities were constructed with 14” wood fender piles, along with the removal and replacement of a floating dock. Construction of two decks, backfill restoration and utilities were also part of the KBI’s responsibilities in the restoration efforts.
