Oceanfront residence on pile foundation.
Wood-framed home with close proximity to ocean required foundation withstand high velocity wave action (also known as Velocity Zone) and potential for scour. As such, we utilized deep wood pile foundation with grade beams and concrete piers. Slab and infill walls at ground level were designed to be breakaway construction. For the superstructure, fine design aspects including porches and decks required input and close collaboration with architect.
