Topographic, Bathymetric and Magnetometer Surveys, Geotechnical Investigations, Environmental & Cultural Investigations, Permitting, Land Rights Support
Fenstermaker is currently performing project management, data collection, and engineering & design activities necessary to complete the permitting process and provide construction plans and specifications for the restoration of Queen Bess Island. This multi-disciplinary project aims to increase pelican and shorebird habitat on the island from 5 acres to 37 acres in lower Barataria Bay, through the use of dredged material from near shore or Barataria Bay Waterway borrow areas. The project target is to provide habitat for up to 20,000 nesting pairs of birds.
Fenstermaker is coordinating with various state and federal agencies to develop a design that will provide an optimum habitat for decades to come. We are utilizing our construction management expertise to ensure that the design is constructible with maximum value at a minimum cost. Services that Fenstermaker is providing include: project initiation and planning; compilation, review, and analysis of existing data; data collection, including but not limited to topographic, bathymetric and magnetometer surveys, geotechnical investigations, environmental and cultural resource investigations, numerical modeling, water quality analyses, permit development, land rights support, engineering and design, bid document development, bid phase support, and technical assistance.
