Preserving Yesterday, Protecting for Tomorrow

The Seawall Reconstruction Project is a result of tropical storm and hurricane damage to the historic seawall built in 1833 by West Point cadet engineers. Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. was hired to determine the feasibility of this flood control project. Duties included researching pertinent issues, synthesizing the information into easily understandable graphics and reports, and presenting it to citizens in a series of carefully planned public meetings and design workshops. By integrating the City’s goals, citizens’ priorities, and solid urban design and engineering principles, the project has been funded by FEMA.
