This project was designed and built to create outdoor space for local residence to be able to walk, enjoy a workout and relax. One of the challenges encountered in constructing was the elevation of the deck off the water. Because it is elevated over 10 feet above the water, extensive framework and scaffolding were used to set pilings and framing. The Shade structure in the middle was especially challenging as the piles needed to where 10” round 55’ Tall Piles. Since this was a retention pond with no boat ramp access we were not able to use a large crane barge to set them. Once set we designed a Stainless truss system to offset the tension of the shade canopy. Stainless handrails and synthetic WearDeck decking ensure a low maintenance facility for years to come.
