Who are We?
We are a construction company, (who also provides agricultural management, development & real estate services – projecthistory-30-editwww.bluegoosegrowers.com), based in Ft Pierce with offices in Arcadia and Labelle. As a General Contractor we provide many heavy equipment construction services including site work, drainage systems & improvements, land preparations & leveling, levee repairs & construction, water retention systems, waterway construction & maintenance, road construction, as well as many other services. Our experience with managing large tracts of land for agricultural development and production, where smaller margins and efficiency is key, has taught us that it is important to get the quality and work right the first time, but more importantly, do it efficiently.
Cooling PondDuring the last 4 years we have completed several projects for power generation companies. Most recently, we worked at a conventional power plant making improvements to the cooling pond drainage system and at a nucler power plant, as a sub contractor, repairing and grading the slopes of the intake and discharge canals in preparation of placing articulated concrete block mats. On these successful projects the collaborative efforts of Blue Goose, our clients, and subcontractors have yielded results that only a team of persons who care about the outcome could provide. We consider ourselves to be creative, out of the box thinkers and work cooperatively and diligently to ensure our clients’ satisfaction with every facet of our business operations.

The Blue Goose workforce receives extensive ongoing safety training and is accustomed to working to high safety and security standards. We have a division of management and workers who are badged for nuclear and secured areas. Our worker’s compensation EMR meets rigorous standards and we are proud to say that we have had no reportable injuries while performing work on the various projects.

FPL-Sanford Cooling Pond

Here at Blue Goose we often have to work under strict measures to protect and preserve the areas surrounding developing projects and sites. Here at the Sanford Cooling Pond we constructed five structures adjacently along a levee base on a 1,200 acre reservoir. We installed seepage, surface drainage, and sump systems. We dewatered areas and added sheet piling as needed. We followed firm dam protective measures in hopes of improving drainage to the power plant’s cooling pond. Another successful project.

 

Type and Extent of Sub Contracting: Metal Fabrication, Drain Pipe Installation, Electrical, Well Pointing and Testing.

Platt’s Creek Wetland Midigation Project

On this site, it was BGC’s duty to construct 47.87 acres of wetland mitigation within a span of 80.66 acres.   It assists with regulatory wetland mitigation by creating a buffer between the mitigation site and the stormwater facility while creating a freshwater marsh bottom with a protective six inch layer of muck. Designed to remove 1,200 pounds of phosphorus and 1,600 pounds of nitrogen annually, this project proved to improve water quality and more habitats for wildlife in he area, particularly wetland birds. Those 63-acre stretch of water habitat restoration and water treatment are set to improve quality of life as well, as the city has plans for hiking trails and picnic areas set in it’s future.

St. Johns River Water Management District Levee

This project proved to be one of our bigger tasks, hosting multiple different parts in the course of one unified plan. We began with the construction of cofferdams, clearing, demucking, dewatering and the placement of fill to the invert elevation of the proposed gated culverts. We also had to construct a driveway to a parking lot. We excavated a navigational channel and constructed a jetty on the Fellsmere Water Management Area (FWMA) Island parcel. We moved into the installation of the three 72-inch culverts with flap gates, two concrete headwalls at 80′ x 23′ high, placing fill in lifts around culverts and  installing filter sand and riprap on the outside face of the levee for erosion protection. We excavated a channel for water egress to the FWMA.  This lead into the construction of Ditch 18, containing an extensive water control spillway structure with a tremendous amount of concrete use.  Ditch 18 is an 84” Drainage pipe in concrete grate with sluice gates and 25 foot concrete end walls.  Its purpose is to allow water to pass back and forth from Pump Station 2 in Sun Ag to the FWMA Recreation Area. This part of the project contained a huge amount of dewatering due to an excessive amount of rain fall causing high water levels that had an extreme effect on the high water table.  The Project was part of a cored Levee installation and is the sister input structure to the adjacent Pump Station 2 effluent project.  Ditch 18 structure allows as much water in as the pump station will allow out – 200,000,000 gallons per day.  The Drainage Structure is structurally anchored to the cored levee to provide for balance between influent and effluent water forces.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
