Bam Nuttall beats three to £8m pier job

Orkney Islands Council has selected Bam Nuttall to build a new pier at its new marine renewables service base at Coplands Dock.

Bam Nuttall won the Scottish job, estimated at £7.5m in the OJEU notice, with an £8.06m bid, lower than the top bid of £11.1m.

The job involves building a new pier with a deck area of approximately 2,900 sq m and an approach approximately 95m long by 8m wide constructed using tubular steel piles with a concrete deck slab.

The contractor will be responsible for undertaking the structural design and producing construction drawings for the new pier and approach structure. Dredging works are required to provide minimum water depths of -5m CD to outer berths and -3.5m CD to inner berths. It is estimated the dredge quantity is approximately 16,000 cu/m and will be disposed of at sea.

Bam Nuttall will also build a new 6.2m-wide bitmac surfaced access road designed by the client to service the new pier. The road is approx 550m long and will include the installation of power, water, telecommunication and SW drainage services.
