The scheme was to provide a large production facility at the group’s site in Plymouth to enable the construction of their 100 ft sports yachts and launch facility. The site extended from the foreshore to approximately half way across the low tide mark. At high tide there is sufficient water to allow launching.
The project was highly complex and involved implementing the clients brief which included advanced methods of extract to comply with regulations involving the use of resin. In addition the pontoon had to withstand the loadings imposed by the boat lift which were transferred by piles to the bedrock below. A great deal of pre contract work and diligence enabled the client to realise their aspirations within the budget constraints.
