Neptune Shipyard – River Tyne
The former shipyard facility, on the banks of the Tyne, is being developed as a leading renewable energy centre for the United Kingdom by our client, Shepherd Offshore. The site comprises: a cleared site with all below ground concrete structures in place, including crane pads/foundations/floor slabs and foundations. Given the ship building history of the site these structures were substantial.
Our works comprised but were not limited to:
