When TasPorts needed its 50m long earth fill wharf demolished and brought back to life, they called on VEC Civil Engineering to do the job, knowing we have extensive experience working in marine environments.
For this project our client, TasPorts, needed working access to the site maintained. Another physical challenge, the existence of a fuel bowser on site, meant VEC teams had to deliver an innovative solution for the project.
The team built the new wharf structure in two separable portions and tackled the entire construction process in nine stages.
From establishing the site using local knowledge, to extensive piling (using a rubber tracked excavator), corrosion prevention and concrete work on site – the VEC team used their widespread experience in marine infrastructure to complete the works.
Dedicated to stakeholder engagement, the team also managed daily communication with wharf users including commercial fishers, tourism operators and fuel tanker operators.
