The project located along the City of Sturgeon Bay’s waterfront transformed a brownfields site into an improved tourist destination near the Door County Maritime Museum. This $1.4 Million, three-year project features a decorative concrete waterfront promenade. The 775-foot walkway included 16,689 square feet of concrete with 4,608 square feet of exposed aggregate finish band.
Ready mix concrete use accounted for approximately 25% of the project for a total of 310 cubic yards. Alternate sequencing of banding and broom finish sections was a difficult challenge for the contractor especially around existing obstacles including the Museum. Another issue was dealing with daily tug and museum tours requiring concrete pours to be staged accordingly. The site was compact, so the contractor had to work from inside out, bands first and concrete second which limited the number of daily pours.
The project included four seating areas, waterfront parking areas, 15 cubic yards of concrete for 10 light posts and 1,125 square foot concrete foundation for a timber seating terrace.
