Meeco Sullivan Develops Unique Dock Solution

Ken Brown, General Manager of Atlantic-Meeco, announced the completion of the challenging Point Venture marina expansion on Lake Travis in Point Venture Texas. The Atlantic-Meeco design team had to develop a creative solution to fit the new docks on a small piece of land outside the main cove that would not be affected by low water levels, would still be accessible to the existing marina facilities and would meet the Lower Colorado River Authority’s requirements. As Tania Spikes, Point Venture’s General Manager said “we had three companies bid on this project and Atlantic-Meeco was the only company that said this could be done and that they would develop a workable solution to all the challenges we faced. They helped us design a perfect solution for adding 76 new covered slips, 6 sailboat slips and a 536 foot wave attenuator and their customer service, communications and attention to detail throughout the project made this expansion run smoothly from start to finish. We couldn’t be happier.” Plus, Atlantic-Meeco helped revise the original permit to expand the slip sizes from 20’ to 24’ and the design gives Point Venture the ability to easily add more slips when needed.

The new and unique “elongated H design” of the dock includes the Meeco Galvanized Steel System, polyethylene floats and concrete deck panels and Atlantic-Meeco handled every aspect including design, engineering, permitting and installation as well as electrical and land accessibility design.

Ken Brown, General Manager of Atlantic-Meeco, noted that “this Point Venture project is another great example of our team’s can-do attitude and our commitment to exceptional customer service and the project manager, Steve Shoup, did a great job leading and managing our team to bring this project in ahead of schedule and under budget.”
