Pier Maintenance & Repairs
Leask Marine can perform dismantling of structures that are out with the reach of everyday demolition contractors due to their underwater location.
We regularly execute subsea cutting operations for clients to carefully remove sections of steel, concrete and timber from under the water. This can include vessels, piers, other marine devices and foundations.
Leask Marine are accomplished in all areas of pier and marina design and construction, both for commercial and private developments across the UK. This service includes the design, construction, and maintenance of wave screens, pontoons and rock armour. We install scour protection systems including grout bags, mattresses, gabion baskets, and concrete scour mats. These systems have been used to prevent scouring around bridge abutments and a variety of other maritime structures.
We have at our disposal a range of plant and equipment for marine salvage and wreck removal and transportation of materials, around and to and from marine sites. Our salvage and wreck removal includes the finding and removal of failed structures, sunken vessels and lost equipment. We ensure that all operations, large or small are of equal importance and produce full method statements and risk assessments for every project before starting work. All contracts are carried out to the highest quality without risk to safety or to the environment.
We have a qualified civil engineering team with wealth of marine knowledge and experience that is supported by our own floating plant. No job is too big or too small.
Leask marine is renowned for their specialised works in strong currents and high tidal zones and remote locations. We also use this experience to support all our inland water works.
Condition surveys of marine structures are undertaken and we design appropriate repairs to piles, walls, pipes and scouring. These may be visual surveys, metal thickness surveys or investigative surveys, including drilling and coring into the concrete.
Repairs for marine piles are designed to protect, reinstate or improve piers. These repairs are carried out to piles suffering from accelerated low water corrosion in tidal zones.
