Seawall & Dock Inspection (SDI) was founded in order to provide a service that is highly needed, but often overlooked with waterfront property: seawall bulkhead and dock inspections. This was never more evident than after the hurricanes of 2004, as our owner worked as a sub-contracted Coastal Engineer performing post-storm damage surveys on behalf of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Beaches and Coastal Systems along the entire East Coast. The amount of collateral damage to residential and commercial properties caused by the failure (whether partial or complete) of poorly maintained and dilapidated sea walls was extremely high. If these deficiencies had been addressed through an inspection by a qualified Professional Engineer prior to landfall, the failures and additional damage may have been prevented.
Our owner and lead technical professional is Ryan Murray, PE, a Registered Professional Engineer who specializes in forensic structural, coastal and geotechnical inspections and engineering services. Throughout his career, he has worked as a coastal engineer providing services ranging from inspections and permitting support to advanced storm surge modeling and large-scale marina/development design. In addition to Mr. Murray, SDI utilizes a network of affiliates along the East and West coast of Florida consisting of individuals hand-selected and trained to assist with the inspection process. By utilizing locally-based affiliates, we are able to keep the costs down to the owner while taking advantage of the latest technology to provide a comprehensive inspection. All analysis, final reporting and recommendations are produced by a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Florida.
