Riverside Quay Extension


Back to Projects

Client: Port of Tyne

Project: Extension to the existing "Riverside Quay" operational berth at Port of Tyne.

Cost: £19 M

The project consisted of the 125m long suspended quay extension connecting to the existing “Riverside Quay” operational berth at Port of Tyne, including a new mooring dolphin and rear quay, the demolition and reconstruction of the existing operational quay and the replacement of the existing quay wall. This also included capital dredging, removing 110,000m3 of material to create new 260m long x 50m wide berth pocket. The works were phased to allow Port operations to continue during the construction period. The works were subject to the conditions of the Marine Management Organisation Licence.

The opportunity

This project was strategically important to the Port of Tyne, as it provided a new operational berth with improved structural loadings whilst also providing a platform for future quayside developments.

The challenge

The port environment provided challenges in terms of tidal restrictions, weather conditions and their associated risks, as well as the need for the port to remain operational throughout the project. The programme had to be phased to accommodate the day-to-day shipping requirements of the port’s customers. Total Project Integration worked closely with the port’s Engineering Team to develop a concept design and set of employer’s requirements, recognising the operational restrictions, and a clear communication strategy between all relevant parties. We also assisted in the Official Journal of The European Union procurement process, and subsequently managed the works on site.

The outcome

This successful project was completed safely, on time, on budget. Total Project Integration created a team ethos, with an open, honest, and transparent approach. Stakeholder management was of paramount importance, both internally within the operational port and with external third parties.
