Coastal Engineering Company, Inc. Celebrates 40th Anniversary with New Look
Coastal Engineering Company, Inc. is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2016. This year also marks an exciting step in company history with an overhaul of the brand image. “The main goal of the rebranding is to better convey our multifaceted expertise in engineering design for environmentally sensitive areas.

LATEST ENGINEERING PROJECTS ON CAPE COD AND THE ISLANDS
Nobska Light Restoration
Coastal Engineering Co. is excited to be a part of the Nobska Light Restoration project together with Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber Architects, Inc.! Nobska Light, located along the shore just east of Woods Hole, was established in 1828. In 2015, the Coast Guard licensed the Town of Falmouth's Friends of Nobska Light Association to maintain stewardship of the buildings and grounds. The Friends intend to occupy the building for their administrative offices and to house museum/galleries for public display of historical artifacts.
Town of Oak Bluffs Fire/EMS Station
The project consists of a new two-story wood-framed public safety facility with an attached pre-fabricated engineered steel structure for the apparatus garage bays. It is approximately 20,850 square foot Fire/EMS Station on a 1.10 acre town-owned parcel. New construction finishes emphasize ease of maintenance and durability. The old Fire/EMS building and pavement were removed as part of the work of this project.
Construction bid documents
Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church
Coastal Engineering Co. was hired to assist with the development of plans to restore Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church from ground up after an arson. The Church Building Committee decided to use the rebuilding process as an opportunity to make improvements to the layout and accessibility of the previous facility. An adjacent site was acquired to expand the parking lot to 128 parking spaces and to support the 10,000 SF lateral building expansion. Other programming goals included reusing the remaining concrete foundation and integrating a user friendly walk out at the lower grade level. The new facility consists of a sanctuary with seating for 350, welcome center/narthex with a covered porte cochere, multifunctional fellowship hall, and other spaces designed to facilitate church functions. Super-insulated new construction utilizes durable and non-combustible materials along with energy-efficient HVAC and mechanical systems. Vegetative buffer strips and LID drainage swales are used for storm water management.
