Marina Bay, Quincy

FPA has managed the environmental review and permitting process for Marina Bay in Quincy, MA, the largest marina in New England. We have secured federal, state, and local permits to undertake dredging, construction of travel lift piers and a floating breakwater, and expansion of the marina float system. Due to the marina’s location next to an Area of Critical Environmental Concern and a public recreation park, as well seasonal restrictions on dredging and in water construction, the permitting strategy for this site required an extraordinary level of precision and timing. FPA's mastery of the permitting process enabled the financing and completion of construction work well in advance of the boating season.
