Marina Rehabilitation


The City of Port Washington wanted to upgrade and expand it's existing marina.  The original pile-supported slips in the City's existing recreational marina were in disrepair and utility services were sub-standard and did not satisfy the demands of today’s boaters.

Project Challenges


  • Maintain slip availability to all marina patrons during the boating season to maintain revenue generation.
  • Reduce the costs involved with the anchorage system.
  • Minimize the cost of the fuel pier replacement.

Baird Solutions


  • The basin was de-iced during winter months to allow for off-season removal and replacement the dockage system.
  • The dockage layout design incorporated pre-existing piles into the new anchorage design to increase the number of slips and revenue generation.
  • The pile-supported fuel pier was replaced with a new floating fuel pier, integrating full-service transient boat slips into the design.
