The DF (Direction Finder) Tower on Landguard Point had been decommissioned for many years so was surplus to requirements.
This was our very first project for HHA. We were asked to visit site and provide a methodology and price for the replacement of rotten hard wood timber deck boards and support beams on their Launch Jetty which provides a 24/7 service for pilot boats and other utility vessels.
This project had to be completed during the school summer holidays and to a strict maximum budget. Amicus worked with the client and design team to develop value engineering savings to come in under their maximum spend.
This project was planned over a 12 month period to ensure minimal disruption to HHA’s VHF radio shipping service and follows our successful upgrade of the main radar facility at Landguard Point in 2017.
This project proved challenging in more ways than one. We commenced the work for Allston as sole subcontractor delivering the site clearance and enabling works for the new housing development.
HHA contracted Amicus to investigate options for the refurbishment of the three steel pontoons at Ha’Penny Pier in Harwich.
This project was for our regular client, Harwich Haven Authority, and involved the preparation and re-painting of the Victorian visitor centre/museum and the café/amenity building on the pier along with the repainting of the pier lighting columns and benches.
We were appointed to this project by London Borough of Havering (LBH) as a direct result of our performance at the Lexington Way development where we impressed the council representatives with our quality of work, safety and performance.
Amicus were approached by FM Conway to advise on a repair proposal for their jetty on the River Thames in Erith which is where they offload aggregate boats for their asphalt batching plant.
