The Phoenix on the Bay Condominium Complex in Orange Beach, AL needed a new seawall, and the Everlast engineering and manufacturing teams worked with General Contractor Pope Construction to replace the bulkhead using both new and existing materials.
The Phoenix on The Bay Condo Association oversaw the seawall project in three phases, beginning in late 2013 and reaching completion in fall 2014.
The condo association began observing settling problems around the dock, pool, and common areas in the Phoenix on the Bay Condominium Complex. Local experts investigated to find that the existing aluminum bulkhead had large holes seeping backfill into the harbor area.
In with the Old, In with the New
The leaking holes were caused from the salt water corroding the aluminum material. Between Everlast engineers, local engineers, and the general contractors, we found a solution using composite sheet pile driven in front of the existing aluminum bulkhead.
To reinforce the area between the old and new seawalls, we poured sand backfill. Because the existing tie backs and deadmen were still in good shape, the 24-foot long EverComp 26.1 composite piling was secured with materials already in place.
