Project Description

TMS were contracted to provide plant and labour to install 3 pre-cast concrete abutments, 120m of floating walkway/launching pontoons and locating piles and extend the concrete boat ramp.


All works were undertaken on time and within budget. Health and Safety – No incidents.

At the time of commencement of the project TMS were initially only contracted to install the concrete abutments, piles and floating pontoons. During the overall construction it was evident that the concrete contractor engaged to construct the surface of the boat ramp was not proficient in placing concrete in a marine environment. TMS were subsequently awarded the job to rectify and complete the work when the client was unsatisfied with the performance of the concrete contractor.

Feed back from the client and the users of the facility has been positive and this has resulted in follow up discussions with the OBC to undertake the upgrading and renewal works for the second boat ramp facility within the marina.
