The Steam Packet Inn, Totnes

For Buccaneer Holdings


TMS were asked by Buccaneer Holdings to rebuild part of a collapsed river wall on the River Dart.
The wall had partly collapsed and an area of the adjacent pub’s outside terrace paving had settled significantly
causing it to be closed. Over a week of low spring tides, TMS deconstructed 20m2 of stone wall and then rebuilt
it ensuring it was backfilled with concrete. Tie bars were installed to strengthen the wall and significantly reduce
the likelihood of any further damage occurring thereby increasing its longevity.

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.

For Buckfast Abbey


Located in South Devon within the grounds of the historic Buckfast Abbey on the River Dart,
where a monastic community has been present for over 1000 years, an old existing weir on
the river had begun to collapse and full failure of the structure was imminent. At the same
site on the river, an old pool and historic traverse fish pass were also dilapidated and
