Construction Begins at Charleston Waterfront Park Harbor Taxi Dock

Located at Charleston’s award winning Waterfront Park, this public project involves the permitting and engineering design of a Harbor Taxi Dock for the City of Charleston, Department of Parks. The facility consists of the installation of a new 12’ x 50’ floating dock for Harbor Taxi berthing with an adjoining additional 10’ x 20’ floating dock to serve as a landing platform for the gangway.  A new 5’ x 8’ fixed access deck will be connected to the northern end of the existing Waterfront Park pier to serve as a point of access for the  6’ x 80’ ADA accessible gangway.

Since the new docking facility was added to the existing Waterfront Park Pier, special attention was given to the aesthetic design of the modified handrails and gate, which required approval from the City of Charleston Design Review Committee. The ADA accessible gangway, floating dock and piles were designed to withstand the active Charleston Harbor environment.
