Florida Cofferdam – Cofferdams are built in different bodies of water in order to pump out the water. The purpose of a cofferdam is to temporarily keep the site dry and water free. Once this is done, construction can begin on the dry part of the land.
When it comes to marine construction, cofferdams play a key role. They are commonly used when repairing bridges, piers, oil platforms and other structures. When the work is completed, the cofferdam is removed and the area is filled with the water again. Since Florida cofferdams are made to keep water out, the walls must be waterproof and higher than the maximum water level.
There are also different types of cofferdams that vary depending on such things like the soil type and water level.
- Earthen cofferdam
- Rockfill cofferdam
- Single-walled cofferdam
- Double- walled cofferdam
- Braced cofferdam
- Cellular cofferdam
