Sharpness Pier Repairs, Sharpness Dock

For Canal River Trust, Kier

4.5 Months

Sharpness South Pier is located downstream of the outer gates (sea gates) to Sharpness Tidal Basin. The pier is
effectively located within the River Severn, at the point where the river meets the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal. The
function of both north pier and south pier is to guide ships into the Tidal Basin from the River Severn
In June 2020 the MV Lady Adele (photo inset) on arrival at Sharpness Port contacted the South Pier at Sharpness.
As a result of the vessel impact, the South Pier sustained damage which required urgent inspection as-well-as removal of
seabed debris and loose elements that may become detached in the near future.

Toft Pier Redevelopment

For Shetland Isles Council

18 Months

Working on behalf of Shetland Islands Council, TMS were appointed as Principal Contractor for the construction of a new pier in Toft
at the north end of Shetland Mainland. The work was completed over an 18-month period with a break during the winter ‘windy’
season and a further break forced by the recent COVID-19 construction shut-down. TMS worked closely with Shetland Island Council
to develop ‘COVID Safe’ practices to allow safe and timely return to the island for continuation of the works during the on-going
pandemic. The new pier was required to replace a redundant, much smaller jetty that had once served as the inter-island ferry berth.
Following relocation of the ferry to a new “roll on/roll off” berth, the original jetty had fallen into disrepair and TMS were therefore
Tappointed to construct a new pier to be used for the operation of the islands’ fish-farming vessels.

Landing Craft Slipway, Devonport Dockyard

For Mansell

A £25m complex at Devonport Dockyard has been built for the Ministry of Defence to provide services for the landing craft and assault boats of 539 Assault Squadron Royal Marines. A critical factor in this development was to provide the ability for the Landing Craft Air Cushion (hovercraft) and regular Landing Craft to be removed from the water. This was achieved through the construction of a new slipway.
