RT Group, Inc. (RTG) was retained by W. H. Peppes General Contractor, Inc. to design repairs and improvements to the existing seawall located at King Park Beach. The repairs were required as a result of the deterioration of existing sections of the seawall.

Repairs included the replacement of several sections of seawall, totaling over 150 linear feet, including a newly designed section. The new section was analyzed for wave loading and scour. Improvements also included the installation of a new concrete parapet above an existing section of seawall that was over 300 feet in length.
