After removing most of the metal and bolts from the old metal building, we pulled down the frame with a forklift. Then, we began cutting and hauling away the steel for recycling.
Gulf Star Marina
Gulf Star Marina is the world’s first “Smart Marina,” using ASAR technology provided in partnership with GCM Contracting. By removing the traditional forklift and adding a hydraulic, diesel-free, electric-powered, automated storage and retrieval system, Gulf Star Marina can deliver a vessel from rack to water faster than any other lift system in the marine industry.
The building was completed in late 2020, an indoor valet car parking service, refueling services, a ship store, open spaces, and a bait shop. Because the building was built with concrete panels, instead of metal sheeting, it can withstand 200 MPH+ wind speeds, meaning that your boat will be safe from a storm or named hurricane.
Project Scope: Construction of a 27,717-square-foot dry-stack boat storage facility.
Major Features: ASAR (automated storage and retrieval system)
Additional Features: Concrete tilt-wall construction, 200+ MPH wind resistance, safe indoor valet parking.
