Project Description

The existing wooden wharf structure outside the yacht club had deteriorated over time and was deemed unsafe. TMS were engaged to refurbish/rebuild a new wooden wharf to ensure the safety of any users. TMS undertook the responsibility to construct and design the wharf to ensure that it could be constructed within a realistic timeframe and met the necessary safety provisions.


The entire project was completed within 2 months and ready for the holiday boaties visiting the island over the 2009/2010 summer. The client's feedback was complimentary on the overall timeframe taken to complete the project and TMS's care and attention to detail.

The RNZYS now engage TMS to undertake all ongoing refurbishment and maintenance works on a number of their facilities. The reputation , performance and the quality of work TMS has established with the RNZYS has developed an ongoing relationship where TMS are the first point of contact to any marine related issue.
