CTI was asked to provide preliminary pool design assistance by Aquatic Development Group (ADG) in New York, along with the owner’s architect, Chris Jones in North Palm Beach, FL. The pool equipment was purchased from White Water in Canada.
During the annual Riverbend Festival, access is needed from the walkway pier structure at Ross’s Landing to the Coca-Cola stage. CTI was retained to engineer a “gangway” for this access. The stage is a floating structure and is only present during the festival; therefore the bridge had to be designed to be easily erected and disassembled. Because the elevation of the river fluctuates, the connection had to also allow for vertical movement. Its half-trough truss style design allows the main trusses to be part of the guardrail.
CTI assisted Catoosa County with the concept layout, design and permitting for a community park adjacent to the historic Old Stone Church on Highway 41 near Tiger Creek in Catoosa County.

With no upgrades since 1982, the campgrounds of Chattanooga’s popular state park were overdue for updates. Some renovations were needed for age-related issues. Others were needed to accommodate increased traffic, changes such as the larger RVs now common at the park, and provide for year-round campground usage.
Bank erosion eliminated 20 to 30 horizontal feet of shoreline and began undermining campsites. Riprap was placed in 1982 and completely replaced again in 1995. CTI designed a solution that combines concrete cable mats as a revetment system and riprap to maintain vegetation along 770 linear feet of shoreline. This area is subject to prevailing winds and wave action from boats. The project was constructed during lake winter pool.
CTI completed a fast-track preliminary design for three ARRA-funded projects in less than 3 weeks in order to secure funding for Red Bank. Design included narrowing of Dayton Boulevard and shifting all five traffic lanes to produce a “traffic calming effect.”
