Sydney, Australia

To upgrade their dock facilities, Brady Marine and Civil was commissioned by Defence Managing Contractor GIBDT to build the new Cruiser Wharf at Garden Island, Sydney Harbour. The new 430 m long quay is constructed from offshore driven steel piles and prefabricated concrete elements.

The project involved the supply and driving of over 1,000 tubular steel piles for the new quay structure, as well as the supply and assembly of precast concrete structural elements weighing around 12,000 tonnes. The chosen methodology required the use of two large barge-mounted cranes to install the piles, and extensive temporary works to support the onshore crawler cranes responsible for placing the precast concrete.
