In 2014, the Terrebonne Port Commission in Houma, LA hired Low Land Construction to build a large boat slip for its government complex building. The General Contractor used Everlast products to complete the project within four months, between August and December.
Louisiana’s Port of Terrebonne is located on the Houma Navigation Canal immediately south of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, serving as a direct route to the Gulf of Mexico.
Docking on the Houma Navigation Canal
The Port of Terrebonne is a land base for oil and gas support, and the Port Commission required maritime facilities to dock seven vessels off the channel. To do this, the existing property was excavated to a depth of eight feet.
After excavation, Low Land Construction drove 30-foot sheets of EverComp 26.1 composite sheet pile. The sheet pile was installed 22 feet along the coast, and finished with timber deadmen, hot dipped galvanized tie rods, and large timber whalers.
The Benefits of Building with EverComp
EverComp 26.1 is engineered to withstand the rigors of the harshest marine environments, and it’s used most popularly for ports that require low life cycle cost with superior strength.
Everlast composite sheet piling provides all of the advantages of vinyl sheet piling, but can be built at much taller wall heights, rivaling seawalls constructed with much heavier steel sheet piling.
Our composite pile is available in various strengths, lengths, diameters, and colors, so we can provide the right product for your project. To learn more about Everlast manufacturing and engineering, get in touch with one of our seawall experts.
