Our maritime experts are proud to support a host of exciting schemes across Ireland and internationally, where we’re helping to shape port and harbour infrastructure, marine and coastal facilities from feasibility and planning through to design and construction.

The marine sector is a key driver of local and global economic growth. The importance of water-borne transport, along with continued investment in commercial and residential waterside developments, requires innovate design solutions that build long term climate resilience.

Our extensive portfolio comprises a range of construction and regeneration projects, including ferry terminals and port infrastructure, dockland regeneration, marinas, quay and riverside walls.

Environmental aspects are often a critical component of marine projects, and we regularly work in and around areas of outstanding natural beauty and high environmental value, delivering carefully considered engineering solutions which minimise impacts on their surroundings.

We are passionate about securing a brighter future for generations to come, and our coastal protection and flood risk experts have extensive experience in helping to manage coastal and estuarine environments and communities.

Featured Project

Dun Laoghaire Cruise Berth

Berth 4, Dun Laoghaire Harbour is the refurbishment of an existing disused ro-ro ferry berth (Berth 4) at St. Michael’s Pier in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. The disused Berth 4 was to be upgraded to accommodate the Stena Lynx III ferry.

Waterman Moylan was appointed to plan and manage the refurbishment. A mechanically controlled steel transition ramp spans from a berthing pontoon to the pier. The ramp was badly corroded, and the mechanics were no longer functioning.

Refurbishment works included site applied corrosion protection system to steel frame and tailgate, upgrade /replacement of the ramp and ramp control mechanics and also the refurbishment of the control building.

Damaged greenheart timber fenders along St. Michael’s Pier adjacent to Berth 4 were removed as part of the works and replaced with steel SHS pile sections which were driven 7 metres into the seabed. The embedded SHS piles spanned 15m above the seabed to the pier surface. Compression fenders and rubbing strips were fixed to the steel piles.

Raking fenders to the existing 190 sqm pontoon which serves Berth 4 were replaced as part of the contract works.
