Being on the water, the project brought with it some challenges. Particularly with tide-dependent tasks, making it essential to monitor tidal patterns daily. This element of the project sometimes posed scheduling challenges, as tides made the working conditions dangerous.
Our expertise allowed us to make judgement calls if conditions became too rough to continue working. Despite the changing tide patterns, Ascon’s efficient leadership ensured there were no timeline delays.
Another significant challenge was the need to match the materials, particularly the distinct red hue used in the original port construction over a century ago. Various building materials were trialled, with red builder's chalk being the perfect colour match.
