Project Description:

Thomas & Hutton provided design, plans, permitting assistance, bids, and construction services for three Daniel Island residential boat ramps, and design, plans and permitting assistance for a Charleston public boating facility.

Codner’s Ferry Neighborhood Boat Ramp - One lane concrete boat ramp, fixed and floating docks, a timber retaining wall, rip rap, and a porous parking lot. There was a 10-foot vertical drop along the edge of Beresford creek that necessitated a timber retaining wall system so the ramp could be cut into the bank.

Daniel Island Park Neighborhood Boat Ramp - 16-foot wide concrete boat ramp, a floating dock system parallel and perpendicular to the ramp, a segmented block retaining wall, extensive rip rap due to erosion along Ralston Creek, and a porous pavement parking area.

City of Charleston Boat Ramp - T&H planned the site and prepared permit drawings in 2003. Due to archeological restrictions, it was replanned within the SCDOT ROW, under I-526 in 2008. Working around the structural members of the I-526 bridge, the site featured several protected trees, necessitating a creative layout to allow large vehicles and trailers to easily access the landing. This ramp was not permitted or built due to lack of funding.
