The city has chosen a contractor to design the new Naples Pier.
At last week’s meeting, City Council unanimously agreed to award a contract for design services to Turrell, Hall &Associates in the amount of $1,478,400.
Chad Merritt, the city’s director of parks and recreation, described it as a “big milestone.”
The iconic pier took a beating from Hurricane Ian in September, forcing a rebuild.
According to its winning proposal, Turrell, Hall & Associates has lined up a team of experts for the job who’ve worked on more than six pier projects over the past five years, including modifications to the Naples Pier.
The local marine and environmental consulting business will work with seven other firms, as subcontractors, to get the work done in six months.
One of the primary reasons it won the contract: Its promise to retain the pier’s essence.
