Sandwich Marina Project Documentary
A wonderful documentary about the Sandwich Marina and Harbormaster project is now available for viewing.
The Sandwich Marina is one of the busiest marinas in Massachusetts and is home to a large commercial fishing fleet. The old pile-supported marina office frequently flooded during nor’easter storms, necessitating the need for a new facility. Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber Architects, Inc. along with Coastal Engineering co., Builders Systems Inc., and a super team supported the town’s desperately needed improvements with a new top notch facility.
The new office and garage (Completed late 2016) are sited near Sandwich Marina boat ramp, allowing the Harbormaster a panoramic view from a second story office, while affording boaters convenient access to the Harbormaster facility. The marina playground that formerly occupied the building site was relocated closer to the canal. The parking lot was realigned and new walkways were added to provide full handicap accessibility to the facility. Because the building is located in a flood zone, it was designed to higher wind standards, elevated above flood elevation and properly secured to sustain hurricane force winds. Roof runoff is routed into dry wells for groundwater recharge on the site.
We are thrilled with the final result, but take a look for yourself!
Special Thanks to Ksenia Pryme from Coastal Engineering Co. who filmed, and produced the documentary.
