This project involved the construction of an alternate port facility to service ships coming to Christmas Island during specific times of the year when the main port is unavailable due to inclement weather.

Decmil’s scope of work involved removing 10,000 cubic metres of rock and replacing it with imported fill.

In addition, 3,000 cubic metres of structural concrete was poured and 3,000 cubic metres of precast concrete panels were poured on the island then erected around the face of the wharf. This project involved logistical challenges due to the location of the construction site and required a high level of planning to avoid risks to plant, human resources and the environment.

Delivering solutions.

We are committed to outstanding project management and delivery regardless of the scale or the intricacy of the work.
