CLE was retained to provide design and permitting services for several finger piers on Old North Wharf in Nantucket. CLE’s clients each owned unique cottage properties with a bulkhead, but there was no dock space for a vessel. CLE performed a hydrographic survey and resource area assessment to evaluate the project constraints. CLE then proceeded to design and permit the finger piers. CLE’s vast experience in the design and permitting of waterfront structures, including an understanding ofNantucket’s specific requirements, enabled CLE to secure all local, state, and federal permits necessary to allow the project to proceed to construction. These finger piers will greatly enhance the properties by providing dock space and access to navigable waters in a very desirable location.
