Three More Major Floating Dock Contracts Announced

McAlester, OK— Jim Mason, National Sales Manager for Meeco Sullivan announced that the company has recently been awarded several new contracts highlighted by the Admirals Hill Marina in Chelsea, MA, the Albany Marina in Albany, NY and Burnside Marina on Lake Cumberland Kentucky.

The Admirals Hill Marina is situated on Island End River and will include 140 slips totaling 22,000 square feet of floating docks replacing an old concrete and timber system. This new dock system will be Meeco Sullivan’s heavy-duty Sullivan Timber Frame system with recessed trim style IPE decking.

With tight delivery timelines and production scheduled through the holiday season, Meeco Sullivan was able to commit to begin deliveries within 30 days from initial order placement with completion of the project 30 days after that. This was a high profile project and Meeco Sullivan was chosen over several other dock builders because of its reputation for quality, competitive price and ability to meet their critical deadlines.

The Albany Marina project is a new 30 slip full service marina on the Hudson River in Albany, NY. The new floating docks will include a boat launch open to the public and were designed for easy removal before and after the boating season due to winter ice flows on the Hudson. The project includes a combination of six 50 ft. shore to dock stiff legs with heavy concrete bottom anchors that will keep the dock system securely in place. The heavy duty galvanized steel docks with open truss frames and 4’ x 42’ all welded aluminum gangways are also being constructed at Meeco Sullivan’s Oklahoma facility. The project is scheduled for winter completion so it will be ready to install for the Spring 2016 boating season.

The Burnside Marina experienced severe damage from storms in Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 and this latest project includes new D and F Docks totaling 64 covered slips of various sizes with exposed aggregate concrete decking and winch and cable anchoring. The project also includes reconfiguring 3,000 linear ft. of attenuator as well as relocating and repositioning the fuel pier, ship store and restaurant areas for easier access. All work is scheduled for Spring 2016 completion.
