Later on, these results lead to a design developed by IMP which included enhancement to the touristic offers while adhering to economic targets. The idea of an eastern breakwater with an integrated marina, promenade and a prominent building at the breakwater head was born: the “Sea Bridge Juist”.
As a basis for project implementation, IMP was commissioned to perform hydrological and morphological measurements. Results of these comprehensive measurements enabled an estimation of sedimentation potential inside the planning area and to forecast future maintenance work necessary for the port. Concurrently, IMP was responsible for management and coordination of the project of preparing the documents relevant to the application for the planning approval of the construction work taking place in direct proximity to the Wadden Sea national park of Lower Saxony. The planning approval procedure was conducted on behalf of the island community Juist, and IMP afterwards accompanied the execution of construction work by participating in project control.
The breakwater “Sea Bridge Juist”, which was completed in 2008, is accessible on foot through the promenade and has visibly improved the touristic offer of Juist.
