Following our successful completion of Phase 1 of the pier renovations we were contracted to install a new parapet to enable the client to open the pier and maximise fund raising for future phases.
We were recommended to this client following our work at Shotley Pier. The works involved removing the old timber foundations of their beach hut and installing new screw piles with a hardwood timber base frame.
This contract took many months of planning to ensure that the radar facility for HHA was only down for a few days. The works were coordinated during our other works at Landguard Point.
As part of our civil engineering term framework contract with HHA we were contracted to undertake a variety of projects at Landguard Point in Felixstowe.
We were contracted by Trinity House to replace the cable tray system under their pier in Harwich which had become corroded and was missing many sections resulting in cables becoming loose.
This is another phase of repair works at Ha’Penny Pier which we have been involved with since 2017. This phase concentrated on the entrance area where a number of decking support timbers were found to be rotten.
Following a competitive tender process we were awarded this project to extend the existing slipway using hardwood timber piles and frame with a GRP deck along with an extension to the sloped quay wall using a steel frame and GRP decking.
We were engaged by the Sea Scout group to construct a new reinforced concrete slab for a new boat shed and to concrete the rest of the yard and existing slipway.
Amicus were awarded this project in early 2020 but the start was delayed due to the Covid virus and lockdown. Once works got underway in the summer we engaged with the client and the community to deliver the first phase of this unique and ambitious project.
Following very poor weather in the Winter of 2019 a section of the old existing quayside timber retaining structure was washed away risking the loss of access to the Harwich and Dovercourt Sailing Club.
