Constructex was contracted to replace the existing 70-tonne boat hoist and to construct a new 260 tonne capacity boat hoist.


The project work included:

  • cutting down installed 19 no. piles to level

  • installation of top hats 

  • reconfiguration and extension of existing pontoons

  • installation of new pre-cast and in-situ reinforced concrete beams

  • installation of fenders, bollards, safety ladders, rubbing strips, handrails, walkways, safety grab chains and life buoys

  • Installation of low level lighting along the hoist pier walkways and operating flood lights at the ends of the hoist piers to illuminate the working area 

  • Modification to capping beam to the return wall 

  • Modification to the capping beam and new ground bearing slab supported on a new upstand wall over the relieving slab ranking pile line.

  • Installation of additional tie rods to the existing sheet piles wall connected to the rear of the relieving slab and yellow hatching painted over the no go area of the quayside to ensure the quay wall is not overloaded by the boat hoist.


This project was incredibly complex and involved working around the client's operations to ensure that the were still able to operate. Installation of the precast units involved a tandem land side and marine side lift planned in house by Constructex's appointed person and overseen by our in house lift supervisor.
