Location: broughty ferry, dundee
Main Contractor: McLaughlin & harvey
Scope of Works:
We’re thrilled to announce our involvement in the multi-million-pound Broughty Ferry Flood Protection Scheme project where we created Decorative Gates, Balustrades, and a Corten Steel Sculpture.
Project Management Part of the project was to deliver decorative gates, this presented an exciting opportunity for local primary schools to participate in a competition, where they were tasked with creating designs for the floodgates. With over 300 entries in the competition, the winning designs were selected. We then moved on to the refinement of the designs, fabrication and eventually the installation of the gates. The two pupils whose designs had won the competition were offered an invitation to visit our facilities and witnessed first-hand how their drawings were transformed into reality.
The winning dolphin gate was installed just down from the RNLI station and the winning castle gate is situated separately at the start of Douglas Terrace.
We took great pride in designing, fabricating, and installing the Davit Sculpture, which was crafted from Corten Steel. It serves as a tribute to the RNLI’s contributions over the last 170 years and features the names of all the lifeboats on the structure. This remarkable piece of art, which is located on Beach Crescent, creates an archway that frames the RNLI base.
Additionally, we designed, fabricated, and installed balustrades that extend along the front of Broughty Ferry next to the beach. The flood protection wall now stretches from Douglas Terrace to Fisher Street and up to Beach Crescent.
Overall, it was an incredible project to be a part of and we are proud to have contributed to the creation of this new development that the locals can now enjoy.
We have been awarded the next phase of the project which is to create an active travel route between Broughty Ferry and Monifieth. The ongoing works involve the restoration of the existing balustrade work and the extension of Metaltech’s balustrade from the previous phase.
