Buffalo, NY– In March of 2016 Meeco Sullivan was awarded one of the largest contracts ever by the New York State Parks System. The City of Buffalo Inner Harbor Development Corporation’s plans for revising and reconfiguring the existing Lake Erie Marina made it the largest full service marina in the New York State Parks System with 1063 slips. Meeco Sullivan delivered over 148 tractor trailer loads of docks on schedule from its McAlester, OK facility so the marina could be ready for its scheduled Spring 2017 opening.
- Modern fueling stations and a new ship store
- A new PWC dock
- A newly renovated full service restaurant
- A newly renovated onsite Operations, Management and Boater Services office
- A new 400 ft. wind and wave attenuator to protect fueling and courtesy slips at the mouth of the harbor
Meeco Sullivan’s sales, design and engineering teams worked closely with Safe Harbor Development to achieve maximum space utilization while providing the most functional, updated slip sizes and amenities available at any marina in the region. Since all of the new floating dock systems will be permanent, incorporating the right anchoring system was a major part of the design effort. A chain and cable anchoring system with driven piles beneath the water was an integral part of the marina design to withstand the extreme temperature changes and water flow conditions while maintaining a clean, aesthetic look. Meeco Sullivan handled all aspects of the design, engineering and production of the floating structures and local contractors handled the installation of the docks and utilities.
