Waterfront Construction Welcomes the Spud Barge

SpudBargeWaterfront Construction is excited to announce a new addition to the team that will increase the efficiency of our building process and allow us to move equipment and materials in the water rather than through your lawn: The spud barge is a 20 feet wide by 40 feet long red spud barge.

The spud barge is used to haul equipment and materials through the water as opposed to on land. This means that we are able to avoid dragging our heavy equipment through a yard, but instead can carry them with us in the water.

A spud barge is a kind of marine vessel that is capable of providing a solid, stable work platform in waterfront construction operations. Each spud on the barge consists of a heavy-duty pipe that is driven into the bottom of the river, lake or ocean for increased stability when working with heavy equipment in waterfront construction projects. Spud barges can be used for a variety of purposes in a variety of environments, making it an ideal addition to our fleet.

Before we had the spud barge we had to get our equipment to the shoreline through the property of our clients. Now, we are able to load all our materials and equipment on the spud barge so that your lawn will be safe from our heavy equipment. On top of keeping your lawn safer, these spud barges will allow us to complete projects more efficiently, meaning we can work faster to allow you the opportunity to enjoy your new boat dock or pier sooner.

Whether you need a new boat dock, a pier or shore stabilization, see how the spud barge can help make your dream project become a reality faster!
