IMBC adds marina design course

The Association of Marina Industries and the American Society of Civil Engineers are partnering to offer a one-day marina design course from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 29 at the International Marina and Boatyard Conference in Fort Lauderdale.

Presented by the primary authors of American Society of Civil Engineers’ Manual 50, the marina design course will offer case studies to demonstrate how to apply highly integrated planning and design to small craft harbor development, including breakwaters, inner harbor structures and land-based support facilities.

“Waterfront development continues to play a growing role in the new global economy,” ASCE director of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute Tom Chase said in a statement. “We are eager to partner with AMI on this course to bring the primary authors of the new ASCE manual directly to the marine industry.”

“We are pleased to work with ASCE to offer specific training to marina engineers,” AMI chairman and certified marina manager Gary Groenewold said in a statement. “In conjunction with our new Marina Design and Engineering breakout track, this well organized and established course will help us expand IMBC’s educational program and meet the needs of our members.”

IMBC takes place Jan. 29-31 at the Broward County Convention Center.
