Construction Methods

Floating Dock Systems

Our expertise in floating dock systems extends to various applications, including marinas, breakwater installations, strata moorage docks, and commercial public docks. Floating docks offer several advantages, including:

  1. Adaptability: Floating docks can adjust to changing water levels and tides, ensuring consistent access to boats and vessels.
  2. Ease of Installation: They are quicker and more cost-effective to install than traditional fixed docks.
  3. Durability: Our timber and aluminum frames are designed to provide stability and longevity, even in dynamic water environments.

Pile Driven Structures

For clients requiring fixed, robust structures, we offer pile-driven solutions. These are ideal for projects that demand maximum stability and load-bearing capacity. Pile driven structures require boatlifts, resulting in a higher initial cost. However, the costs of the boat lifts can be very comparative to the cost of a breakwater. Boatlifts are considered an asset and can generate greater Return on Investments.

  1. Stability: Piles offer exceptional stability even in high-traffic areas.
  2. Heavy Load Support: These structures are capable of supporting heavy loads, making them suitable for commercial docks and marinas.
  3. Longevity: Our engineering standards ensure that our pile-driven structures withstand the test of time, even in harsh marine conditions from wind and wave impact.
  4. Durability – docks on piles are suspended above water and less likely to be damaged during high water events
