About the Project


Project: Coastal Armoring/Seawalls

Location: Ponte Vedra Beach and St. Augustine, St. Johns County, FL

Hurricanes Matthew (2016) and Irma (2017) left behind extensive property damage in the Northeast Florida area. Particularly affected were many coastal properties located along A1A in St. Johns County. These properties experienced catastrophic levels of erosion on their beach front property. The Tocoi team designed varying styles of seawalls to protect existing vulnerable homes from future erosion events. Working with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), Tocoi helped over 200 clients receive permit decisions enabling protection for the many properties affected. Timely coordination with property owners, contractors, and permitting agencies brought together successful protection of these vulnerable beach front properties.
