Wet Docks

We offer a wet dock builder service, taking the initial client concept idea of how they want the wet dock to look and operate.

We will then work on the specification and agree the design components, focussing on aesthetics and quality of the elements used for the build. 

Our in house experienced designers will then create a 3D model of the wet dock to present to the client for approval. We can either work alongside the clients architect, or act as a stand alone designer, in order for the client to apply for the appropriate planning consents. We will support the client through every step of the process from concept, design, planning approval through to on-site completion. 

 How do we do it? We will first undertake a site visit with the client, getting to know their key drivers, such as longevity, quality of finish, will it be high end, functionality etc. Once we have gained an understanding of what the client is trying to achieve, we will undertake a full site survey to determine what can be achieved within the constraints of the site. Once the survey has been undertaken the specification will be agreed with the client and the design made up. 

Upon completion of the design we will work on behalf of the client to liaise and engage with the Environment Agency in order to gain the required Flood Risk Activity Permit. This process can take approximately 1 to 3 months. Once the permit is obtained, construction can begin. 

We use all of the latest environmental best practices to ensure minimum disruption and disturbance to existing flora and fauna. Depending on the design, the steel sheet piles will be driven to the perimeter of the wet dock and the existing ground excavated and removed from site. Once the sheet piles have been installed to retain the existing earth and the excess earthworks removed, the final touches can be made. The size of the dock will determine whether a concrete capping is installed to the sheet piles, or timber rubbing boards to protect the vessel once it has been berthed in its new home.

With over 40 years experience, you can trust us to deliver the project for you and make your dreams come true. So if you have a dream to install a wet dock on your premises, then please contact us for expert advice.
