Project Overview

From a national competition, DNREC selected ATM to provide professional engineering, contract, and construction phase services for the complete reconstruction of an existing 306-slip public marina facility at Delaware Seashore State Park. The redevelopment project was designed to correct the severe infrastructure deterioration at the facility as well as increase berthing with dry stack storage.

ATM services included existing conditions analysis, development and analysis of design alternatives, economic and feasibility analysis, and pro forma development. Based on these studies, and on behalf of the State, ATM then permitted and designed a 274-wet slip and 174-dry storage marina. In addition to the marina design, the effort included an evaluation of different methods for stabilizing the marina basin shoreline, dredging and disposal alternatives, and the design of steel sheet pile bulkheads, travel lift piers, and a heavy-duty concrete slab. Environmentally sound drainage infrastructure was incorporated into the marine services area. Planning/redesign of site access, circulation, and parking was also completed. The marina is highly successful with strong occupancies and customer satisfaction.
