Dunmore East Fishery Harbour is located at the South Western extremity of Waterford Harbour. The fishery harbour is located at the south east end of the village and is accessed from the sea through an point at the northern end of the fishery harbour
A number of inspections and reports were carried out on the West Wharf by Consultant Engineers noting ongoing deterioration of the original structure, which was constructed in the 1960’s. The structure consisted of a deck slab 250mm deep with beam sections integrated into the slab.
As a safety measure the DFAM decided to replace the entire deck slab and carry out rigorous remedial works to existing piles. The contract was broken into 3 competitive tenders, JCL winning all 3. In total over 2300 square metres of deck was to be replaced with over 60 piles requiring extensive remedial works.
