The project involved a major reconstruction of Albert Quay West, in the busy inner harbour for Aberdeen Harbour Board.
Major quay wall elements included:
- 4000sqm of heavy AZ48 interlocking sheet piles to the quay wall
- 610diam tubular bearing piles to the heavy lift slab
- 6000m of 22m long UB raking bearing piles to Anchor Beam
The work also included 13,500 cum of infill behind the new piled face, a 1500cum, 3m deep reinforced concrete cope in the inter-tidal zone, 4000sqm of roads and paving, and a concrete pile cap to the anchor beam.
Cathodic protection and polyester-acrylic flaked glass paint protective systems were also applied to the exposed pile face.
The demolition and removal of the adjacent finger jetty, with tubular-piled foundations, precast / in-situ reinforced concrete deck and mooring dolphins was also undertaken as part of the contract works.
The final part of the contract was improving seafaring access to the new quay facility with the dredging and off-shore disposal of 36,000cum of material from the seabed.
