Technomarine Constructs Marina

An award-winning marina construction professional, Erik Sanderson has overseen the construction of more than 250 successful marina applications worldwide. The CEO of Technomarine since 2006, Erik Sanderson has led the international marine company in completing projects including Harbourside Jupiter in Florida.

Located in Palm Beach County, Florida, the multi-use Harbourside Jupiter opened in December 2015. Situated along the Intercoastal Waterway, the $160-million project included the construction of restaurants, retailers, a hotel, an amphitheater, and a Riverwalk. Technomarine designed and installed a 31-slip marina whose aesthetic matched the award-winning Riverway to provide access to the area. In addition to meeting unconventional challenges, such as installing decorative tiles on a dock system, the company overcame numerous environmental obstacles.

To preserve the area’s mangroves and seagrass, the company had to secure numerous permits and implement engineering concepts such as graded decking to allow sunlight to reach underwater plants. Additionally, a wall prevented construction run-off from negatively affecting underwater vegetation.

Certification Encourages Sustainable Neighborhood Developments

A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Erik Sanderson serves as chief executive officer for Technomarine Group, specializing in executive oversight as the company executes projects involving the development, construction, and maintenance of superyacht marinas. Additionally, Erik Sanderson acts as an advisor to the U.S. Green Building Council, which encourages sustainable building practices by awarding Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification to projects such as neighborhood developments.

Initiated in 1993, the U.S. Green Building Council formed when David Gottfried, Mike Italiano, and Rick Fedrizzi met with representatives from architecture firms as well as numerous nonprofits to develop a rating system for green buildings. The rating system considered how construction might impact both people and nature and evolved into the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification. When applied to neighborhood developments, the certification seeks to create connected and sustainable communities.

Neighborhood developments qualify for the Leadership in Energy Environmental Design (LEED) v4 for Neighborhood Development Plan if they are currently in any phase of design or planning and at least 75 percent of the project is completed. The project must meet other requirements, including occupying a location that does not impact habitats of endangered species, wetlands, or other protected areas. Additionally, the project should also aim to promote healthy living conditions for residents and restore and protect water resources, along with other environmental and sustainability goals.
