CPWG Engineering was contracted by the city of Redington Beach to prepare construction guidance documents for the restoration and/or repair of the seawalls along the 59th Avenue and the 161st Avenue causeway. The existing seawalls were demonstrating signs of deterioration caused by exposed to salt water and weather.
Our Project Engineer conducted a site visit to assess the exiting conditions, conduct field survey to identify property corners, the existence of outfall pipes and the water depth from the top of the existing seawall. After performing the assessment, construction plans were developed for bidding purposes. After the plans were approved by the City Engineer they were released for bid.
The plan called for the removal and replacement of 870 feet of the existing seawall cap, sidewalks, park bench slabs, existing grass, and irrigation systems. The existing seawall was replaced or repaired with the void cell between new vinyl and old wall panel filled with concrete. All barnacles on the existing wall and within the filler concrete area were removed by the contractor prior to installing the vinyl panels. Existing landscaping was replaced and backfill replaced with shell mulch.
After the bid was awarded, CPWG Engineering provided construction management and observation of the selected contractor. We initially provided daily visits as the contractor mobilized and began construction (5 work days). After the first week, the level of required observation and management was reduced based on recommendations of the CPWG Project Engineer and Redington Beach City Engineer.
