Wave Attenuation Devices (WAD®s) - Biloxi Coast, Biloxi Marsh of Louisiana

These Wave Attenuation Devices (WAD®s) were cast here at Design Precast & Pipe, Inc. and are beginning to make their way along from Biloxi Gulf Coast to the Biloxi Marsh along Louisiana’s northeastern shoreline to dissipate wave energy, reduce erosion, allow for sand accretion, and create a new critical habitat for invertebrates and fish. This ongoing, 11-mile project is a partnership with the Coastal Protection and Restoration Agency (CPRA) to improve the durability of shorelines and increase fish habitats—something we’re really excited about here at Design Precast!

Inner Harbor Navigations Canal Lock - Dolphin Panel Replacement - New Orleans, LA

Situated directly adjacent to one of the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal Locks, this project included a massive, 50'x65'x6' precast base created by Design Precast & Pipe, Inc. The structure acts as a form to which approximately 1400CY of concrete will fill and finish at 12' tall. Additionally, 9 panels of varying size are outfitted with channels to attach hanging apparatuses and sit on the piling. Design of this job began in February 2020 and reached completion in April 2021. It is an impressive display of precast, engineering, and construction—all thanks to the joint efforts of DPPI, CAYO, Covington Civil and Environmental, and the USACE.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The month of October is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness month. At Design Precast & Pipe, Inc., we are doing our part to help raise awareness for this cause by switching from our traditional blue logo to a pink logo. This is featured on all of our pipe and precast products that are being shipped out this month. Although a small change, it can have a great impact in raising awareness, and awareness is power.
