Bellingham Marine upgrades California marina

The first phase of work at Santa Barbara Harbor's Marina 1 along California's southern coast was recently completed by Bellingham Marine.

The first part of a multiphase project to replace the marina's approximately 500 slips was started in November 2009 and completed in August. It included the replacement of the marina's headwalk and access gangway and upgrades to the marina's utility infrastructure.

The new headwalk at Santa Barbara Harbor's Marina 1 is 10 feet wide by 1,160 feet long and provides access to and from the marina's 500 slips. Designed with a slightly higher freeboard than the existing docks, sloped transition floats were installed between the new headwalk and the existing main walks.

The project also included upgrades to the marina's electrical and mechanical infrastructure along the headwalk, including potable water, sewer, gas and fire suppression systems.

Bellingham Marine furnished all supervision, management, services, labor and material. The next phase of construction, which will include the replacement of docks O and P, was awarded to Bellingham and is scheduled to start next year.
