Florida Dock & Boat Lifts was established in 1976 under the name Norquist Construction Company. Founder Ken Norquist started the company as a custom home builder. Located in beautiful South Lake County, Florida, Ken quickly discovered the need for a quality dock builder for waterfront homes.
Each dock and boathouse is unique in its design beginnings. With literally hundreds of docks and boathouses designed over the years, we will be able to quickly and efficiently design the right plan for you. There is no limit to the possibilities.
We can lift all kinds of boats with equipment sized to support the weight of the vessel, and bunks (hull supports) are matched to your hull so that the weight is distributed correctly. State-of-the-art material and components are used to ensure years of trouble-free service. Florida Dock and Boat Lifts also offers annual and bi-annual boat lift maintenance programs as well as repair services.
Our boat docks or boathouses will need to withstand the harsh winds of Florida’s tropical storms. We design with this in mind, starting with the foundation. The foundation is the key to a sturdy and long-lasting structure. Every lake bottom is different: some are sand, some are muck or mud, some are hard pan or even rock. We use the equipment that best suits the situation.
When it comes to seawalls, we provide a variety of choices for our customers: aluminum, vinyl, wood or rip rap. We will come to your home, evaluate the site with you, and recommend which system or systems we think would be the best for your home. We will then create professionally drawn and engineered plans and submit them to the necessary government agencies for permitting. Once the wall is in place, we handle all the back fill, irrigation repairs and placement of sod.
