New Deck at the Small Boat Harbour, Lerwick
Contract Value: £480,000
Contract Length: 5 months
Client: Lerwick Port Authority
Part of the task involved replacing the former timber deck, used for storing the Club’s yachts, with a new and larger one. The other element of the job was the reconstruction of the sea wall and the creation of a promenade, with a new concrete wall to support both that and the road.
The contract value was £480,000 and the contract duration was approximately five months. The deck is formed by H-section piles driven to bedrock with a suspended wooden deck. The wall is made from precast concrete sections, lifted into place, with mass concrete infill at the back to hold them in place.
