Lagoon and canals, as well as design of revetment, docks and seawalls.
Wave and Storm Surge Analyses
Water Quality Studies
The Principals of Cummins | Cederberg served as project manager and senior engineers for the coastal and marine components of the Goldeneye Development located in Oracabessa on the northeast coast of Jamaica.
Goldeneye is a luxury development, which offers a high-end casual experience. It attracts numerous celebrities who enjoy the secluded destination. As part of expanding the development, extensive coastal and marine engineering work was required including storm surge and wave analysis, water circulation study for the proposed lagoon and canals, as well as design of revetment, docks and seawalls.
The Principals of Cummins Cederberg participated from inception to completion. The initial investigations included surveying, site assessment and review of available local material for construction. Several local quarries were evaluated to evaluate material along with construction logistic.
Detailed coastal engineering studies were conducted to determine design conditions for the coastal structures and upland development as well as to understand coastal processes at the site. A hydrodynamic study was completed to ensure superior water quality in the canal and lagoon system.
The area is directly exposed to offshore waves and the northern shoreline was stabilized with a 2,000 feet of rock revetment. Docks and recreational platforms were designed for private residences along with a boardwalk at the lagoon perimeter. To accommodate larger buildings, land reclamation and a seawall design was completed.
Throughout construction, the Principals of Cummins | Cederberg worked directly with the onsite construction manager conducting periodic inspections to ensure construction according to plans and specifications as well as advise contractor on construction methods.
