Tobermory Revetment Works Completed
February 2014 saw the completion of repair works to the Tobermory slipway revetment for Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd.
The key elements of the contract were:
- Removal and replacement of 350m2, precast concrete revetment including new high flow geotextile and stainless steel reinforced concrete crest beam.
- Additional 110m2 AB fabric formwork toe protection
- Repointing and grout stabilisation of existing masonry seawall
- Protection of RNLI berth structure for duration of works
- Placement of cast in situ concrete toe protection to existing revetment structure
- Installation of hydraulic weep tubes to completed masonry wall
- Installation of edge protection barriers to side of slipway
- Stabilisation of rock outcrop to landward side of slipway
- Associated site works
Ramsay Muirhead, head of civil engineering at Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd commented:
“Norfolk Marine recently completed a revetment replacement and sea wall repair project at Tobermory on the Isle of Mull for Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL). Despite working through the middle of winter and with a number of unexpected challenges, Norfolk delivered a good quality finished product. They willingly undertook a large amount of additional works CMAL requested, all of which was carried out to within sensible additional costs and in reasonable time. Their team on site worked very well with the port operator, the ferry operator and other local stakeholders, including the RNLI.”
We would like to thank CMAL for placing the contract with Norfolk Marine Ltd and look forward to working on future projects with them should the opportunity arise.
