MARINA PLANNING & DESIGN Working on the pontoon infrastructure in the Portonovi marina basin. Aquamont. Aquamont has also undertaken the huge job of installing a series of 523 interconnected piles that support the fixed piers. Due to the deep water, a number of the piles are over 55m (180ft) long. Responding to Marina Projects’ challenging specification for floating equipment, Marinetek used a wide variety of pontoon and breakwater types. Finger pontoons were incorporated in berths up to 15m (49ft) and ‘Super Yacht’ pontoons and all-concrete ‘Heavy Duty’ pontoons used for the main piers. These are connected by semi-flexible rubber shock absorbers and steel screws for minimal maintenance and long service life. Marinetek has designed and manufactured a floating wave attenuator to protect the marina from north-easterly winds. This outer breakwater is 180m (590ft) long and has been constructed using Marinetek’s giant 20m (65ft) long x 5m (16ft) wide type M5300BRK breakwater units with side keels. Manufacture has been a marker event for Croatia-based Marinetek NCP. “This breakwater pontoon has been proven at marinas such as Aker Brygge in Oslo, Norway and Palm Harbor in Florida, USA but has never been used in the Mediterranean before,” said Marinetek NCP managing director Boris Miškic. “One of the modules for Portonovi was also the thousandth pontoon to be built at our factory in Šibenik,” he added proudly. Coordinating experts Such a demanding upscale project requires a bevy of experts and excellent lines of communication. Coordination is key. Marina Projects, as specialist marina consultant, has taken a proactive role in the design coordination and delivery of the marina and integration with the shoreline elements, working with Harper Downie Architects (master planners and architects of the Lower Village and Fisherman’s Wharf), Alpina, MLC, Landmark Landscape Architects and CallisonRTKL (architects of the Middle Village, Upper Village and Marina Apartments) as well as the main contractor for Portonovi, Italian construction company Impresa Pizzarotti & Cie. “We’ve been responsible for liaising with the project team, the engineering contractor and client members as required to manage the programme and deliver the final product,” noted Houlgrave, who has spent a high proportion of his time over the past two years on the Portonovi site. “The government regulated the number of berths for the size of the site and its position and we then developed a berth mix to maximise the opportunity and meet client objectives,” he said. “Our experience in designing Porto Montenegro over the past eight years and our understanding of Montenegrin regulations have been real benefits,” he added. The marina elements have also become designer elements. “There have been several special design extras,” Houlgrave confirmed. “The fixed pier, for example, has a specially designed bulbous overhand to soften the edge. The stone for this was mixed and moulded and manufactured in Bosnia. Although it seems a small thing, it was an engineering challenge and is a good example of the minor details that lift the quality of the site.” Pre-cast planters, the mixed stone designs for roads and walkways, and lighting systems are further examples. “We want a unified lighting scheme and will work with a pedestal company to develop a light that, if financially feasible, will continue the ambience we intend to create.” Special design elements, such as this bulbous overhang, lift the quality of the site. - November/December 2016 27
