To provide southeast Queensland with a facility capable of accommodating the world’s largest cruise ships, and to give the region a tourism boost, Port of Brisbane
Pty Ltd (PBPL) commissioned Brady Marine and Civil to build a new 200 m long quay and access bridges.
The contract also included the installation of a
temporary loading jetty, the driving of over 100 steel marine piles, the supply and installation of a precast concrete quay deck and access bridges, and the
design, supply and installation of four single-pile mooring dolphins.
A design-build variant proposed by Brady replaced the traditional inclined dolphin piles with single 4.3 m diameter piles, resulting in cost savings for the client. The close collaboration between Brady Marine and Civil and the Port of Brisbane enabled the project to be delivered safely, on time and on budget.
