More Galvanized Steel Dock Systems

Service Docks/Platforms

No matter what your project calls for we can help you create a steel design and put it on the water. Whether it’s a service, gas, fishing, storage or courtesy dock, a marina store, a restaurant or a small home, Meeco Sullivan’s docks and platforms will provide a solid and safe foundation that lasts for decades.

Our platforms are designed and built to exact tolerances to ensure your building stays level and stable and they include built-in chases that make it easy to install all utility services. Plus, boat slips can be easily integrated with every design. Bring us your idea and we’ll show you the best way to design it, build it and put it on the water.

Public Access/Community Docks

Every year Meeco Sullivan helps city, county, state and federal organizations across the country design and install public access docks. These dock systems not only meet the requirements for handicap access and high traffic use but give everyone easier access to America’s beautiful waterways.

We also work with communities and homeowners associations across the country to provide a series of private docks for waterfront homes or smaller community marinas. Whatever your floating dock needs may be, Meeco Sullivan can help you bring your ideas to life.

Rowing Dock

Rowing Docks

Meeco Sullivan is a clear leader in the design, manufacture and installation of rowing dock systems. We have designed and built hundreds of custom rowing dock systems to meet the specific needs of colleges, private schools, and rowing clubs and organizations across the country.

Our reputation for rowing dock technology, design and functionality ultimately led to us being awarded the contract to supply all the floating rowing dock facilities on Lake Lanier for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia and the Olympic Training Center in California.
