Thompson Engineering and its sister company, Watermark Design, are committed to projects that appreciate and celebrate our coastal setting. So partnering with the state of Alabama on design and engineering facets of Five Rivers, Alabama’s Delta Resource Center, was rewarding in many ways. Watermark designed the public complex, which sits on 81-acres in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta and is a federally designated National Natural Landmark. Thompson Engineering managed permitting, geotechnical engineering and construction inspection of the project. Today, an orientation center, floating canoe and kayak landing, 90-seat surround sound theater and gift store, walking trails and picnic shelters welcome guests, from schoolchildren to wedding parties.
