The Fascine Revetment Wall was built in stages between the mid 50’s through to the mid 70’s to provide protection to the town from river flow from the South Arm of the Gascoyne River and wave action from its exposure to the sea.
In 1998 the Department for Planning and Infrastructure (DPI) awarded a contract for the construction of a 3.5 km long and 30 m wide channel between Teggs Channel and the Tramway Bridge, and the dredging of a boating basin within the Fascine.
These projects involved the removal of approximately 210,000 m3 and 190,000 m3 of material respectively.
Additional works included the dredging of access channels to Carnarvon Yacht Club and Carnarvon Beach Holiday Resort.
Initial work involved assisting DPI in terminating a contract on the basis of non performance and subsequently re-letting the contract.
The project involved the dredging of predominately sand and silt to form reclamation areas suitable for development.
Minor works included design and installation of navigational aids along a 3.0 km channel leading from offshore to the proposed development.
SkyPier at Hong Kong International Airport provides speedy ferry service for transfer passengers. BMT was responsible for the ferry pontoons that act as the principal interface for passengers and baggage.
BMT prepared a business plan for the new offshore multi-user port development in Abu Dhabi, involving staged construction of facilities from initial operations in 2010 to full development by 2028.
Ports North engaged BMT to provide specialist engineering design of the dredging and disposal site and environmental advice for the EIS process. Aproximately 800,000 cubic metres of material was removed and pumped onshore.
Building on the Port of Cairns Cruise Shipping Demand Study undertaken by BMT in 2010 – 2011, BMT is working with project partner Arup to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Port of Cairns Shipping Development Project.
