WORLD NEWS Your FREE digital issue Barrington invests to boost sail programmes USA: Barrington Yacht Club in Barrington, Rhode Island – one of the oldest yacht clubs in the US northeast – has undergone extensive expansion. The project was implemented to help the club grow both its youth and adult sailing programmes. Club Commodore, David Reid Materne, was actively involved in leading the project and was helped by the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council; Harbor Engineering LLC for all engineering and permitting work; Atlantic Marine Construction for pile and dock removal and replacement; and Meeco Sullivan for design, construction and delivery of a new customised floating dock system. The project included: • 100 new slips with ipe hardwood decking. These covered three distinct sections (north, mid and south) and were built as a monolithic dock system to accommodate boats from 10 to 60 ft (3m to 18m). • a 170ft (52m) fuel dock with internal pile guides and floatation to support an enclosed office structure, fuel pumps, utilities etc. • a 300ft (91m) long x 10ft (3m) wide dinghy dock. • a sloping sailboat storage dock. The project was complex. “The layout and overall design of the club was a challenge because of the boundary created by the shoreline, mooring field and Federal Navigation Channel,” explained Meeco Sullivan northeast regional sales manager Matt Beechinor. “Also, the club sits at the end of the Tyler Point peninsula, which meant the area to build the new club wrapped around the corner,” he added. Plans had to consider a wide variety of boats – from 40ft (12m) sport fishing boats to dinghies - and strong river current, said Harbor Engineering’s Gus Kreuzkamp. “To account for all these challenges, the only way to maximise the basin area was to have the floats run parallel to the curvy shoreline. This could not be accomplished with traditional dock construction that has true 90° angles. The floats also had to provide a wide range in specific freeboard requirements from 18in [46cm] down to 6in [15cm] in areas for dinghies and small sailboats that are stored on the docks. Meeco Sullivan did an amazing job bringing my vision for this challenging project to fruition.” Meeco Sullivan handled all the structural and material design of the docks as well as all of the buoyancy calculations.

Phase One, located between Meydan and Al Khail Road, is scheduled for completion before 2020. Unique and record breaking concepts are plentiful in the overall plan. The massive mall, for example, will feature a 150m x 80m (492ft x 262ft) retractable roof; the world’s longest indoor ski slope - at 1.2km (0.7 miles); over 5.3km (3.3 miles) of bicycle and jogging trails; and the largest dancing water fountain in the world reaching over 420m (1,377ft) in length. Meydan chairman, Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, points out the ambitions: “In a city which never stops innovating, today’s [3rd August] announcement is significant for the future of Dubai and the UAE. We have committed to developing a multi-use destination which goes beyond expectations and will cater to every kind of person living and working here, as well as those who travel from around the world to visit.” www.marinaworld.com - September/October 2015 9
