|Owner & CEO: Paul Wilcox
Paul founded Waterfront Construction in 1976 after graduating from the University of Washington.

If the situation requires it, he still picks up a hammer or drives piles.

|Permit Services Manager: Steve Zuvela
Steve worked ten seasons as a commercial fisherman in Alaska and Washington before forming Waterfront’s Permit Department in 1987. Over the course of 25 plus years, Steve has become recognized by industry insiders and regulatory officials alike as one of the region’s leading experts on shoreline permitting.
Our Service Department will inspect, maintain, repair or improve your dock, lift and accessories. We service from Chelan to the San Juans, Puget Sound to Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish.

Service Manager: Zach Wilcox
Waterfront Construction is the Northwest expert in marine construction, a full service seasoned waterfront company. Noted for experienced craftsmanship, with skilled marine contractors in the Pacific Northwest. Waterfront Construction specializes in providing a wide range of construction operations such as fender walls, breakwater, marina & moorage construction, commercial pile driving, repair of commercial piers, dredging op and custom designed projects.
An integral part of any waterfront development is the procurement of Local, State and Federal permits required for almost every project. The permitting process has become increasingly complex over the past few years due to the listing by the State and Federal agencies of several animal and fish species as threatened or endangered. Waterfront Construction has remained at the forefront in understanding these changes. We are committed to serving the needs of our customers while designing innovative projects that help preserve the wildlife we all cherish. Waterfront Construction has a full-time staff to ensure that your project is done right, with all of the appropriate permits and approvals. The strength of our Permit Department comes from over 60 years of combined experience in the permitting process, with an understanding of surveying, biology, engineering and construction.
As part of a project application there may be need for consultation between soils or structural engineers, fisheries biologists, architects or landscape architects to develop the project desired by a client. Our staff can provide coordination between these professionals and work with permitting agency personnel and your consultants during project review to help facilitate the permit process.
Procedures for permitting can be arduous, complex and confusing. Most clients choose to use the trained staff at Waterfront to procure all of the permits for their project. These may include approvals from municipalities, counties, Fish and Wildlife, Ecology, Army Corps of Engineers, National Marine Fisheries, Natural Resources and others.
Ongoing policy changes at the Local, State and Federal levels continue to bring new challenges. Waterfront Construction is committed to working through these difficulties and serving the needs of our customers. Please give us a call and let us show you how we can work for you.
