Wall Repair

The stonework gravity walls to the historic dock basin were suffering from face failure underwater due to loss of its original weak lime mortar. An underwater concrete face repair was selected as the repair method, nominally 100 mm thick. A 10 m long mesh control frame system was adopted which carried a fabric formwork face shutter connected to base and leading side grout bag seals.
