Goddard Consulting were the appointed CDM Consultants for the construction of the £750,000 Imperial Wharf Marina. The new marina resides on the River Thames, and provides over 600 metres of berthing space in London’s fashionable Chelsea district. The Thames is a challenging environment for marina construction, with powerful currents and significant volumes of river traffic generating wash.
27 piles were driven deep into the riverbed to anchor the marina, together with a pontoon design that had an all‐welded steel framework, hardwood decking and fibre concrete floats. The pontoons are fully serviced with water and electricity.
