West Dock Wharf

Client: DMM
Capabilities: Construction, Piling, Defence
Region: Sydney (New South Wales)
Completed: October 2003

The Department of Defence required a revised fendering system installed at West Dock Wharf at Garden Island. The previous fendering system had deteriorated and was suitable only for submarines. The new arrangement can accommodate other navy ship as well as class submarines. The works were performed whilst the wharf remained operational for submarine berthing.

The works included:

  • demolition of the existing fender system
  • driving of steel piles for the fendering system
  • supply and installation of a new fendering system including walkways and handrails
  • connected the cathodic protection system to the existing structure
  • installation of timber pies and wales to the northern and southern ends
