Storms Irene followed by Sandy caused severe damage to the bank that had protected a Private Beach Condominium Association. The design process involved determining a solution that would satisfy both the regulators and provide the Association with adequate protection from future storms and consequential erosion. RACE developed repair alternatives, prepared regulatory permit applications with the CT DEEP and local officials, prepared final engineering design and construction documents for a stone revetment, seawall, and beach replenishment and assisted the Association in selecting a construction contractor. RACE also provided engineering services during the construction process ensuring that the work was constructed in accordance with the design and the regulatory approvals.
