Having a great, accessible, secure marina, rowing center, or other water access area. entails more than just having nice docks. Manufacturing structures like floating docks, pedestrian bridges, and gangways, is easy — engineering products to perform efficiently at unique locations is difficult. You can benefit from our 30+ years of construction experience.
Each location and installation presents distinct challenges, from water flows and fluctuations to environmental and habitat considerations. The way the products fasten to the shore must allow for movement under varying marine and traffic usages. These variations — as well as ecological considerations — must be carefully calculated.
We consult with clients concerning due diligence, site assessment, planning design, installation, and ongoing maintenance. Often, we find that the design and configuration of conventional floating docks, gangways, piers, and similar applications, are unsatisfactory. These design defects limit the life of the products and can put the lives of users at risk.
BoardSafe is concerned about the comfort and safety of our clients, as well as the quality of our construction. We go beyond helping with just shipping a prefab dock. We offer the following:
- Initial consultation
- Site assessment
- Concept drawings
- Structural and foundational drawings, stamped by a professional engineer
- Delivery (Click here to read about how BoardSafe manages all shipping details.)
BoardSafe strives to be environment-friendly in all our operations. Our materials are selected for their durability and sustainability. We design systems that do not hinder the surrounding ecosystem of plant and animal life. Our quick and quality installation process reduces the on-site presence of heavy equipment, and we do it right the first time so we don’t have to return.
