Crab Cay Development, Great Exuma, Bahamas
The proposed Crab Cay Development is a 180 acres luxury development in the Great Exumas of the Bahamas. The development comprise of the island of Crab Cay and is connected to the mainland by Mediterranean style bridge capable of loadings from heavy construction equipment.
The Principals of Cummins Cederberg served as coastal and marine engineers and services included bathymetric surveying and coastal engineering studies, as well as design of marina, beaches and coastal structures.
As part of the coastal engineering analysis, a statistical analysis of wind and waves was conducted, as the site is impacting by both offshore and local wind generated waves. Detailed numerical modeling of waves and hurricanes were conducted to understand site specific coastal processes during both normal and extreme conditions. A flood map identifying flood elevations were prepared for use by the project architect.
A marina design was prepared along with design of shoreline stabilization. The shoreline stabilization along the marina basin perimeter was designed to take advantage of the hard limestone edge to reduce construction cost.
An entrance channel was designed in accordance with international navigation standards as well as to avoid shallow areas to reduce dredging requirements.
