BSG have completed the Design and Build Construction or Build only of numerous Marine contracts.
These have included Marine outfalls, Ferry terminals, and are currently constructing a sea wall and path ways at Portrush East strand. We have gained experience dealing with Crown Estates, Commissioners of Irish Lights, NIEA Marine Construction Licence section, and have liaised with fishermen the public and other interested bodies through our public relations department.
Foyle Ferry Terminal Magilligan
This project involved the construction of a new ferry terminal port within an ASSI and SAC at Magilligan Point. The work included: land reclamation with rock armouring and stone backfill; widening and resurfacing of a 5km stretch of road; construction of a new car park and terminal building; steel sheet piling, a concrete slipway and a steel piled concrete bridge from the foreshore to the slipway area. A storm berthing wall was also constructed with a floating pontoon and associated drainage works. The work was completed within extremely exposed and challenging weather and tidal conditions.
Portrush - East Strand
The works involve the removal, temporary storage, and re-installation of the existing pre-cast wall and step units and the installation of 7m piles to support the pre-cast units. Part of the scope is also to install a concrete capping beam to the top of the piles and this beam is doweled into the existing foundation to provide added support. The works were programmed for these months to try and complete the works while causing minimal disruption to the beach users.
This project involved the construction of two new Waste Water Pumping Stations and Storage Tanks below sea level at Bangor Marina and along the foreshore at Luke’s Point Bangor.
At Bangor Marina we constructed a segmental shaft 20m diameter and 6m deep within an existing car park. A circular sheet piled cofferdam was required to minimise the tidal influence on the construction work.
At Luke’s point we constructed a new 1600m3 in situ concrete storm storage tank along the foreshore area. Temporary sheet piling was also required along the foreshore to minimise the effect of tidal surges on the working area. Work at both sites also included M&E installation, upgrading existing and construction of new sewerage network and carparks.
Portballintrae Harbour Improvements
Severe corrosion had been identified in the existing sheet piles which formed the harbour wall. Proposal to install a new sheet pile harbour wall and replace the harbour deck. The existing slipway structure was inadequate and strengthening works were completed to ensure its future stability. Works included phased demolition and disposal of existing harbour deck, construction of new sheet piled harbour wall, capping beam, RC harbour decking, steps, stainless steel ladders, fenders and mooring points, harbour lighting and amenities including outdoor shower and boat wash provided
