LARCHMONT YACHT CLUB FACILITY IMPROVEMENTS

NEW LIFE FOR A 100 YEAR OLD SEAWALL

The Larchmont Yacht Club located in Westchester County, New York, and founded in 1880, supports yachting while providing social and recreational activities for its members. A curved concrete seawall, originally constructed in 1927, provides separation between the existing pool and Larchmont Harbor. The club requested GEODesign to provide complete geotechnical engineering design, field investigation, construction support, and inspection services for various facility improvements. The improvements include construction of a new pool with terrace areas, an extension to the Clubhouse, and various landscaped areas. The grade within the existing pool was raised by backfilling and compacting soil, which resulted in different loading conditions on the existing seawall.

LARCHMONT YACHT CLUB FACILITY IMPROVEMENTS

GEODesign served as the geotechnical engineer consultant for the Larchmont Yacht Club improvements, which included the redesign of a pool and nearly a 100 year old seawall.  The pool redesign includes areas for different activities such as diving, competitive swimming, and general swimming. To facilitate the new pool design the existing grade on the land side of the seawall was raised to match the top of the seawall, resulting in a changed loading condition to the existing seawall.
