  • Cowes Inshore Life Boat Station Refurbishment

    MMC worked closely with Raymond Brown Construction in the building of a new slipway. MMC designed a custom jig to cut the piles to within 5mm.

    Other works included underwater dredging using an air lance and water dredging system, assisting aligning the brackets and bolting the entire assembly together below the water.

COWES INSHORE LIFE BOAT STATION REFURBISHMENT

Client: RNLI

Contractor: Raymond Brown Construction

Duration: December 2011 / 14 Weeks

Date posted: 04-12-2011

The refurbishment of the lifeboat station and slipway build has been partly funded by a £1M public appeal for RNLI funds. MMC worked closely with Raymond Brown Construction in the building of a new slipway. MMC designed a custom jig to cut the piles to within 5mm.

Other works included underwater dredging using an air lance and water dredging system; assisting aligning the brackets and bolting the entire assembly together below the water; underwater concreting; underwater painting; debris removal and underwater burning to remove the sheet piles.

"I can confirm that your work as a diving contractor was more than satisfactory on the Cowes RNLI slipway project earlier this year. I was also particularly impressed with how easily you proved your competency to the HSE during a visit by two of their diving inspectors."
