Riviera Beach Marina

Riviera Beach, FL

This project was a City Redevelopment Association (CRA) waterfront redevelopment site in the City of Riviera Beach, Florida. The engineering firm of Calvin Giordano had to develop a design that would meet South Florida Water Management Districts permitting requirements covering current and future water Quality and Quantity standards. Understanding that future development on this site would be creating more impervious surfaces as well as needing additional parking we were able to work with the engineer and design a permeable system that would achieve the desired results required for permitting from the District. The system was comprised of 18" of washed #4 limerock, 5" of #57 limerock, 2" of #89 and the wearing course was a 3-1/8" Eco-Holland paver manufactured by Coastal, an Oldcastle Company.

The installation took place over several months by Precise Paving. The 18' wide lower promenade along the marina bulkhead consisted of 25,000 SF of 4"x 8"x 3-1/8" Holland Stone interlocking concrete paver laid by hand. The upper promenade was installed as a permeable system using 75,000 SF of 4"x 8"x 3-1/8" Eco-Holland Stone permeable paver that was also installed by hand due to the number of planter boxes, and patterns involved making a machine installation difficult.

The perimeter road that encircles the new building is 30,000SF also installed as a permeable system using the same paver as the upper promenade. This area was mechanically installed by Precise Paving allowing the contractor to meet his deadlines and open the new facility on time. All of this was accomplished by a coordinated effort from the design team, general contractor, City CRA, paver manufacturer, site contractor and installation contractor.
