Docks & Wharfs

Precast prestressed concrete is used extensively for the construction of docks and wharves - particularly on our East and West coasts - where marine traffic is highest.

Precast construction is the ideal material for building over water where weather conditions are variable and access is usually limited. Precast prestressed piles are often used to support dock structures.

Precast fender panels can be designed to resist ship impact loads. Precast prestressed deck units will support heavy loads on longer spans.

Precast concrete can be designed for long service life in harsh environments. The use of high strength low permeable concrete will protect the reinforcement and resist environmental damage.
