ABOUT

JP. Donovan Construction was the design-build contractor for the new boat ramp complex at Port Canaveral, FL. The complex features eight slips, two pavilions, fish-cleaning tables, restrooms, boat rinse station, paved parking and a grass overflow parking lot. During the design-build phase of this project, JPD worked with the Canaveral Port Authority to implement multiple value engineering options resulting in more than $500K in immediate construction savings as well as life cycle savings in lower maintenance costs and longer design life for critical elements of the boat ramp project.

  • Installation of cable-connected articulated mats/artificial reef structures
  • Repaired and modified existing seawalls using cast-in-place structural concrete
  • Construction of riprap barriers for shore protection
  • Dredging and hydraulic disposal of spoil material
  • Ensured endangered and threatened species were protected during construction
