Seawalls are prime barrier protection against the erosive forces of water.
OCC has extensive knowledge and experience with the construction of long-lasting Seawall barriers for Oceanfront, Lakefront & Riverfront properties.
An OCC Stone Revetment can be utilized as a standalone barrier or, in tandem with a seawall. In an OCC Stone Revetment, the stones are skillfully placed to interlock and maximize the barrier protection against shoreline storm damage & erosion.
Jetties are multipurpose, serving as protective barriers, water access, and even vessel pier functions. OCC built Jetties compliment any waterfront with a reach out on the water that has shoreline stability.
OCC expanded their operations in 2021 to include dock construction. To achieve this they purchased a barge and crane and hired two highly experienced, licensed, barge and crane operators. Seawalls & Docks, they go together best with OCC.
With extensive hands-on knowledge and experience as a base, an OCC design unites functionality, aesthetics and longevity into one protective barrier against erosion and damage as well as dock and pier design and construction.
To ensure maximum quality in every build, everyone, even the company principals of OCC, are on-site, working every project. Unusual? Yes. But the reasons are sound. The OCC hands-on build policy ensures an exceptional level of quality control, build efficiency and project management.
At OCC, Renovation is repair and reconstruction. It is not a cover up job. We know what works and what won't. We build for longevity. An OCC renovated barrier has to equal new construction as much as possible. Anything less is just not on our menu.
Every Seawall is different. Each has individual criteria for proper design and build to ensure functionality, and longevity. OCC understands this and blends experience, skillset and innovation into every project, to create a lasting, attractive, barrier system that works, and works extremely well.
This OCC project involved the expanded reconstruction replacement of several hundred feet of ocean cove facing seawall. The new wall, reinforced with epoxy coated steel rebar, included an all new footing wall, an increase in height of over 1 foot and an increase in width of nearly 2 feet. It was comprised of angular straight sections as well as a concrete boat slip that offers a future, perfect location for a boat lift. This is a relatively sheltered area that still encounters ocean driven erosion.
Without direct road access due to a house, gardens, a pool, accomplishing this project was particularly challenging. Even from the water side, barge access was limited by low bridge height and sandbars. With virtually no disruption to the property grounds, OCC achieved the construction by utilizing one of their smaller excavators and also pumping the concrete up and over the guest house.
A Seawall is, most often, a critical shoreline protection barrier against damage from storms and erosion. An OCC Seawall, sets a high benchmark for value in durability, function and appearance.
The Seawall and Stone Revetment combination is an exceptional method for sea barrier protection. The revetment effectively diffuses large and small wave action to alleviate the forces of destructive wave pounding and even every day water erosion. The seawall is a barrier component that also controls wave intrusion, erosion and flooding. The two systems work in concert to provide a highly functional, attractive, sea barrier system.
An OCC Stone Revetment is a viable, cost effective, natural looking erosion protection system. Instead of just dumping rock, OCC places each induvial stone so that an interlocking system is created with long term stability, strength, functionality and good appearance.
