Howard Smith Wharf Upgrade

In early 2011 Surepipe supplied steel piles to replace the old and compromised timber piles on the Howard Smith Wharves. The replacement of the piles was the first step in a $17 million dollar plan to revalise the historic area.

Surepipe supplied 610mm OD x 12.7mm wall thickness piles, spliced to the required length with driving shoes attached. Protective coatings were required to give the replacement piles a long service life. Because of the long pile length and tight site access, extendable trailers and traffic control measures where employed for the deliveries.
