The Jolly Harbour Marina sought to demolish and replace its
timber docks. It also desired to enhance the dockside amenities offered
to contemporary yachtsmen. Construction work could
not impact marina operations or slip availability during
the upcoming high season.
Devcon Ltd. constructed concrete docks with a
modular design to increase installation efficiency.
Fixed docks were selected because the protected harbour
has limited tidal variation. All components were
pre-cast to improve quality and structural integrity.
Connecting points were poured in place to provide a
monolithic final product. This technique enabled
Devcon Ltd. to perform on-site construction activities
in weeks instead of months. Removable center
panels provide ease of accessibility
for future utility maintenance and upgrades.
Pier construction was sequenced, allowing continuous
operation of the marina and minimizing disruption
to clientele. The project was delivered on schedule and on-budget;
ready for use when high season began.
