On Alabama’s Northern shore of the Intracoastal Waterway lies Barber Marina. It is a full-service marina and boatyard on nine acres with 185 wet slips, 400 inside dry storage slips, 20 outside dry storage slips, yacht repair facility, boat and outboard service center, ship store with marine gasoline and diesel, and a new and used boat sales center. Construction of the marina began in 2004 and Ipe was chosen as the lumber that would be used for both interior flooring and exterior decking and trim. OHC was then tasked with providing all of the lumber for these parts of the build. The entire deck and railing system were built using Ipe and the exterior columns were also wrapped with it. Inside the building, all of the hardwood floors were constructed out of Ipe including the stairs and railings. Now 16 years later the Ipe is still structurally sound and just as beautiful as the day it was installed, making it the perfect species for this project.
