I think as I said before. Seawalls on Marco Island are very expensive for what reason I am not shure of. Panels that can and should be manufactured offsite then shipped in then installed. What is the big deal? Why cannot the panel be placed on a barge or small platform and set in place.
I get concrete up multi-stories for building floors and it is pumped by a concrete pump truck. The boom of the truck would reach most if not all seawalls but I have never seen it done on the island. The cost 100.00 per hour for the pump with a 4-6 hour min charge.
I believe it is the "manufacturing" portion of the process that has the neighbors in uproar next to the empty lots. I think no one minds if the lot is used for access to the seawall. I may be wrong maybee someone can clear the facts up for me.
I can tell you this. In my area a 14" thick wall 10' tall is 100.00 per foot formed on dry ground. So how wide and deep are seawalls? It seems very expensive at 58,000 for how many feet for a residential lot?
