Ocean Cay was a 5-year design-build project that BA led as the prime consultant. The ultimate vision for Ocean Cay was to reinvent what a cruise destination island should be for its guests. The project transformed a polluted, industrial 85-acre island into an Oasis with great emphasis on its 46 acres of world-class beaches and an 84 square mile marine reserve. BA designed this desolate island from concept through the completion starting with the overall master planning of the island, architecture, landscape, and hardscape architecture, civil and marine engineering.

BA designed the utility and infrastructure to support the 110 buildings, a marina, pier, apron, bridge abutments, bulkheads, roro ramps, and an iconic 140-foot-tall lighthouse that includes a work-class light show for guests late into the evening.
