CPPI Completes Spring Boat House Replacement in Homosassa Springs
Charles Perry Partners, Inc. (CPPI) completed construction on a replacement boat house at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park this past spring in Homosassa, Fla.
This project included the demolition of the old existing boat house and surrounding landscape to make room for a brand-new 5,000 square-foot building with aluminum walls and roof panels, as well as new plumbing and electrical systems.
This new facility features a restored boat ramp with guardrails, new wood decking, and a maintenance shop area that provides park service staff with a designated space to service tour boats while not in use.
A key part of the transformation included the installation of precast concrete piles into the ground and water, which required a crane and piledriver with close monitoring from a third-party quality control agency. Two feet of sediment totaling about 615 cubic yards were also removed from the dock site via a hydraulic dredge pump.
“It’s been great to work on yet another amazing project with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Since 2014, we’ve had the opportunity to work along the many wonderful waterways and rails-to-trails in the state with DEP, and we are looking forward to many more,” said CPPI Project Director Calvin Peterson.
