A new era in waterfront development began in the early 1980's when Dan Wittenberg recognized that the surface of the water could be transformed into real estate. Wittenberg founded International Marine Floatation Systems Inc. (IMFS), and it's predecessor corporation Danbuoy Inc., in 1981 to foster innovative waterfront development and create opportunities for “higher and better use” of the world’s most valuable real estate, the waterfront.
Pioneering the use of structural concrete foundation for floating building bases and marina docks. IMFS has been designing and producing concrete floatation for a wide variety of uses for over 30 years. Suitable for rough or calm sites, the concrete float is known for its durability and minimal maintenance costs.
The IMFS concrete floatation foundation is the answer to waterfront development, enabling designers to securely integrate the land with the water. Floats can range from simple marina pieces to large complexes without size limits. IMFS builds its floating structures for the Pacific Northwest market and other areas where the floatation sections can be readily transported. In cases where transport is not viable, IMFS will licence builders and developers to fulfill the needs of their local market.
