Tucketts Clyce, Somerset

For Kier


As part of Somerset’s flood defences, TMS were called in to replace a failing outfall head wall along the bank
of the estuary at Tuckett’s Clyce in Somerset. Using 16m steel sheet piles, TMS constructed a new cofferdam
head wall directly in front of the original head wall, therefore allowing safe demolition of the failing
structure. In addition to the sheet piles, additional anchor piles were installed and attached with steel tie
bars to ensure no movement could occur.

Teignmouth Fish Quay

For Interserve

November 2015

TMS were engaged by Interserve to commence
works in November 15 to demolish the existing
timber fish quay and construct a replacement steel
sheet piled marine structure on the popular Back
Beach area of Teignmouth, Devon. The location
of the site meant that the works took place in
very close proximity to residential properties and
beach users. Construction methods, working
hours and selection of plant was therefore of
critical importance so as not to adversely disturb
neighbours to the site and affect the peaceful
enjoyment of the beach by the local community
and tourists.

historic ones in Stonehaven Harbour. The three new

serviceable life and were at risk of failure if their
condition were allowed to degrade further. The full
scope of the project included:

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.
