Arriving on the RMS on 22 April 2014 will be Simon Quinn from Nicholas O’Dwyer Consulting Engineers and Mathieu Le Gourrierec from CAN France.
Nicholas O’Dwyer Consulting Engineers were contracted in 2008 to undertake a number of key tasks, which included designing and supervising the Main Works element of the Jamestown Wharf Improvements Project Phase 1. CAN France was contracted to undertake the construction of these designs, and both contracts are funded from the 9th European Development Fund.
A number of the concrete slabs laid in 2011/12 have now to be replaced or repaired under the defects clause of the contract. These repairs will be managed by CAN France with engineering oversight from Nicholas O’Dwyer, and CAN France has sub-contracted the works to local contractor John Isaac Construction. Works are due to start around 24 April 2014.
These remedial works are at no additional cost to St Helena Government. T
he slabs which are to be repaired are located in the Thompsons Crane area (mid-Wharf, sea side), and all efforts will be made to reduce disruption to Wharf operations during the 2-3 weeks of work. Inevitably there will need to be some temporary alterations to working arrangements, which will be agreed through liaison with all relevant parties.
