Breakwater Pier Upgrade

Client: Port of Melbourne Corporation
Capabilities: Construction, Piling, Heritage Restoration, Demolition
Region: Melbourne (Victoria)
Completed: June 2015

The Breakwater Pier Upgrade project involved the demolition of precast concrete slabs (40 tons each), of heritage timber pier and reconstruction of heritage timber pier as well as construction of new boat access on the inner caisson and demolition and construction of new Navigation Tower on the outer caisson.

To safely lift and remove 40 ton precast concrete slabs without causing structural failure to the pier an innovative lifting system was developed as well as the smart construction methodologies to enable access for demolition of timber pier section.
