Award winner returns to M&CCE Expo

TMS Maritime, winner of the 2018 Best Project Award, is to return to the Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo at Southampton's Mayflower Park from 11- 13 June 2019.

The company is a leading UK specialist in marine civil engineering, ancillary floating plant and diving services and won the Award for the Swanage Pier Restoration project.

TMS Maritime was appointed by the Swanage Pier Trust to undertake extensive repairs and restoration of the historic timber pier on the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset, UK.

The pier was constructed in 1895 for the steam ship passenger service and has since suffered extensive marine boring worm damage. TMS Maritime’s scope of work included replacement of many of the worst affected timber piles, including deconstruction of the superstructure and reconstruction in new hardwood structural timbers.

The piles were extracted using jack-up barge-based plant, including specialist crane suspended vibratory extraction equipment. Many of the timber piles broke under the water level during extraction, requiring TMS Maritime’s in-house dive team to place the extraction equipment on the remaining pile head underwater to complete the extraction.

Much of the work was undertaken in the inter-tidal zone, requiring specialist access and support to hold the structural members during in-situ drilling and bolting. The project team used a combination of specialist access equipment, engineered temporary works and tidal logistics planning to give safe access to all areas of the pier.

The project was financed by charitable donations and heritage funding, requiring TMS Maritime to work closely with the Pier Trust to manage scope and construction costs to remain within the limited budget.
