Big Chill Beach Club


Sussex County, DE


A first-time public/private joint venture between Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) and the La Vida Hospitality Group (Nage and Crooked Hammock Brewery), The Big Chill Beach Club, built by Lighthouse Construction, is a 200-seat oceanfront restaurant and event facility located at the Delaware Seashore State Park at the south side of the Indian River Inlet, north of Bethany Beach.

Contributing to the success of this project, GTA provided services throughout the design and construction phases including geotechnical engineering and subsurface exploration consisting of electronic Cone Penetration Test (CPT) soundings extending upwards to 100 feet deep; observation of Class B timber and 12×12-inch concrete pile installation; performance of vibration monitoring during pile installation; and completing site visits and reports for bank draws (representing WSFS Bank) during buildout of the facility.
