PLANNING & DESIGN Visitor berths and holding pontoons in place further to redevelopment of berths four and five. Boosting visitor berths in St Helier Work will soon complete on a £3 million project designed to deliver much needed improvement to visitor berths and holding pontoons in St Helier Harbour, Jersey. UK-based consultants, Marina Projects, took the lead role in the development. The redevelopment of berths four and five follows a detailed feasibility study, undertaken by Marina Projects in 2012, that considered the operational requirements and options for development. The berths are used extensively by a range of visiting yachts, resident boats waiting for tidal access into adjacent marinas, as a landing point for cruise ship passengers, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and local tour boat operators. Some 20,000 yachtsmen visit St.Helier each year and a major aim of the project is to enhance the visitor experience/facilities. The mix of uses and customer bases was a key feature of the feasibility study. The project has included the removal of an old link-span bridge within St Helier Marina and installation of a replacement 52m long pedestrian access bridge that improves the connection to berths four and five from Albert Pier. The development has also involved installation of new and improved visitor/waiting pontoons along the full length of these berths; the first landing point for visiting vessels arriving in Jersey. An improved berthing facility is also provided for the RNLI and local tour boat operations. The feasibility work study identified major issues with the structure that retains the water within the impounded St Helier Marina and these were addressed as part of the ongoing works. The project also released the south west corner of St Helier Marina for the potential future expansion of additional leisure berthing in a subsequent project stage. A number of key challenges have had to be addressed for the successful delivery of the project: • Extreme tidal range – with a mean range for high water springs of 9.6m increasing to over 12m at Highest Astronomic Tide. Environmental influences have had a major impact throughout the project on design and layout as well as construction methodology and working arrangements. • Ground conditions – a significant degree of value engineering was required due to the high cost associated with mobilising specialist equipment required for rock-socketing large, 24m long steel piles into the granite seabed. • Stakeholder consultation – the existing berthing arrangements provide a berthing facility for a number of key stakeholders, including the RNLI. The development process has required extensive consultation with the RNLI (both locally and in Albert Pier – nearly ready for business. www.marinaworld.com - May/June 2015 21
