Project Details

Abonmarche Staff worked on all phases of the 31st Street Marina Project from Design and Cost Estimating through Bidding and Construction Administration. The facility was conceived and planned as part of the City’s bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. The harbor project brought together a multidisciplinary team of engineers, planners, and architects to design an award winning* facility. To that team, Abonmarche staff brought over 40 years of combined experience in Great Lakes waterfront and boating to solve the unique challenges associated with building a new marina and launch facility housing 1,000 slips and over 500 feet of broadside docking.

The design team handled layout and detailing of floating docks and fishing piers, gangways, and in-slip utilities serving boats rom 35 to 200 feet in length. Abonmarche designed and detailed barrier-free slips and launch facilities to exceed the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Abonmarche team used its knowledge of marine facilities and boaters needs to advise the landside design team and ensure the facility provided for the electrical, water, waste disposal, and communications infrastructure to support this awesome new facility.
