Fixed and Floating Docks

Home > Services > Marine Engineering > Fixed and Floating Docks

Marina docks are typically constructed of fixed, floating, or a combination; the choice depends on several variables, including cost and surrounding marine conditions. Whether its a fixed or floating dock structure, both must be designed for forces resulting from storm winds and waves, berthing loads, accelerated currents, and other extreme events. The engineers at Cummins | Cederberg will evaluate the potential loading scenarios and calculate which extreme events dictate the design. As the dictating design parameter may vary depending on the location within the marina, multiple locations will be evaluated to ensure the safest and most economical solution.

In the case of a floating dock, Cummins | Cederberg works with floating dock manufacturers, supplying design parameters and performance specifications to ensure the final product meets the expectations of the client.
