FormShore was engaged to provide two cranable platforms to access the underside of the wharf deck and fuel berth during replacement of the wharf decking and structure. Access to keep the fuel berth open and allow tanker movements was required.
We assembled the wharf access platforms in our yard and trucked them to site. The client added their ply decking and craned the structure into place. The larger fuel berth access was trucked in 3 sections, assembled on site and then craned into place.
“It was a pleasure working together with Formshore on our project for South Ports Town Wharf rebuild. Formshore and the team came up with some unique and innovative solutions to enable us to effectively continue construction. The mobile working platform was unique as it was specifically custom made to suit our requirements. They produced a relocatable working platform which our team could use repeatably without any need to assemble and disassemble. This allowed our construction team to carry out works quickly and safely in an area which normally would have had to have scaffolding in place. The berth platform bridge was constructed with the same thinking in mind. The assembly time was minimised as Formshore sent the platform bridge already partly assembled. This enabled us to lift the structure in effortlessly when the fuel tankers docked on the wharf and the vessel workers required passage through our construction site.”
