Fender Marine Construction , the Orlando’s largest specialty Marine Contractor was contracted in 2021 to design and build the dock and covered deck facility on Big Sand Lake. The Jefferson Sand Lake Apartments on the east side of Big Sand Lake was constructed by Walker & Company, one of the finest General Contractors in Central Florida. The project consisted of (2) docks. (1) on Big Sand Lake with the second dock being a fixed dock on Lake Boo Boo, just off Turkey Lake Road on property that used to be a Yogi Bear KOA Campground years ago. The dock on Lake Boo Boo was constructed with a 4’ wide by 30’ long access walkway(dock) and the open deck/dock at the end is 16’x32’ featuring picket handrail all around, “WearDeck” vinyl decking and concealed decorative perimeter handrail lighting.
The dock and covered deck Fender Marine constructed on Big Sand Lake, is the largest marine structure on the lake. This wooden structure has a 5’ wide by 208’ long access walkway(dock), a 28’x35’ deck with a 30’x30’ roof over a portion of the deck, at the waterward end of the dock. This Big Sand Lake dock and covered deck featured built in benches and tables, picket handrail all around, “WearDeck” vinyl decking, concealed decorative perimeter handrail lighting, (2) outdoor grade ceiling fans and recessed beam lights at the roof structure. The lights and fans are controlled by timers.
At the end of the covered deck, Fender Marine Construction installed an aluminum gangway down to a floating kayak launch that is ADA accessible. We are very happy to have performed this work for Walker & Company and the residents of The Jefferson Sand Lake Apartment.
