Knoxville’s Dock Construction & Marine Construction Expert

Custom Boat Docks, Boat Lifts & Shoreline Stabilization In the Knoxville Area

Welcome to Knoxville Barge, a leading custom dock builder and marine construction contractor servicing Knoxville lakefront homes and commercial properties. From fully-custom, two-story docks with multiple boat lifts to simple single slip docks, our team of marine contractors have a well-respected reputation in the Knoxville area as the preferred commercial and residential dock builders since we were first founded in 1980.

Knoxville Barge, a subsidiary of Brownlee Construction, has been serving Fort Loudoun Lake, Tellico Lake, and the Tennessee River Valley area for nearly 40 years. Our family owned company’s mission is to bring our knowledge and experience to solve our client’s challenging marine projects. We leverage our skill set and expertise to provide our clients with solutions that are cost-effective and provide long-term durability. Our experience has given our company the ability to take on any marine project, regardless of scope or complexity to meet and exceed your expectation.

We have recently upgraded our primary construction barge, crane, and tugboat to increase our project flexibility and efficiency.  We provide every client with full-service marine construction, including pile driving, fixed boathouse and marina construction, boat lifts and PWC lifts, dredging, and shoreline stabilization for both residential and commercial purposes.

Thoroughly experienced with dredging coves and channels, shoreline stabilization (rip rap), and dock construction, the Knoxville Barge team is the premier dock builder in Knoxville. We’ve worked with residential and commercial properties along the Tennessee River, Fort Loudoun Lake, Lenoir City, and Tellico Lake.

Dredging & Shoreline Stabilization

Day in and day out, the shores of the Tennessee River, Fort Loudoun Lake, and Tellico Lake take a toll on docks and the shoreline residents and businesses have built their properties on. Shoreline erosion can result in a loss of property, fallen trees, undercut or slumped banks, and reduces the water quality due to sediment pollution.

Knoxville Barge can help you prevent shoreline erosion with our dredging and shoreline stabilization services. These include:

The Knoxville Barge Difference

Client Relationship

First, we take a hands on approach and maintain a one-on-one relationship with our clients throughout every project. This relationship is unlike that of our competitors who often have separate sales managers, estimators, and project managers. Because of this close-knit relationship with each and every client, you’ll work with one Knoxville Barge representative through every phase of your project, start to finish.

Quality Craftsmanship

Second, we self-perform as much work as possible. Over the years we’ve learned that the only way to guarantee high quality workmanship is by doing the work ourselves. Our business is relationship-driven, and we enjoy the process of performing the work – no day laborers or subcontractors – to ensure you are completely satisfied with the outcome.

Our experienced crews specializes in site excavation, concrete foundation, concrete tilt-up panels, steel erection (pre-engineered and conventional), roofing, sheet metal, and carpentry.
