Cost overruns, project delays, and negative legal issues overshadow all too many construction projects on the water and on land. Generally neither the client nor the contractor ever gains from such experiences. Being in agreement on all financial and construction issues prior to commencement of any project is vitally important in ensuring a smooth and timely process. Big Barge Dock Systems believes in entering into a construction agreement that clarifies all project objectives and expectations on behalf of both Big Barge Dock Systems Inc. and the client to equally protect investments. Once the Agreement is entered into, the following occurs:

  • Materials are ordered and the steel substructure fabricating begins.
  • Substructures are delivered to the project site and the deck substructure is installed.
  • Required utility (ie. water, electrical) materials are installed and the surface decking completed.
  • Systems are placed into the water and installed and anchored as per the final project plans.
  • All payments occur and the ownership and occupation is turned over to the client.
