Project: St. Petersburg Pier



St. Petersburg Pier

Location: St. Petersburg, Florida

Sherwood, working as part of the Michael Maltzan team, was selected as winner of the St. Petersburg, Florida pier design competition out of a diverse group of world-class design teams. As lead civil engineer, Sherwood came up with a number of key coastal engineering and sustainable engineering concepts that helped provide the foundation for our team’s winning entry. For example, the new pier and upland developments will need to be a constantly evolving landscape that will adapt to sea level rise as the polar ice caps melt and claim more coastal land areas. The design team based a number of architectural and landscaping ideas on this key underlying concept.
