Morrison Construction were contracted to transform derelict dockland to accommodate a new shopping complex and hotel development. The civil engineering project also involved repairing the marina harbour walls and creating a new sea defence area, land remediation, dredging the tidal basin and constructing new rock revetments and wave deflector devices.
Lynch project manager, Tony Wootton, organised live hire reporting, fortnightly meetings and was on 24-hour call for the duration of the project.
Operators and service staff were also locally recruited and trained to Lynch standards.
Biodegradable oil was used in all of the excavators to help protect the local environment and wildlife.
