Projects Summary

Warbreck Engineering has completed a large number of bespoke projects over the past 28 years, with clients ranging from small independent businesses to Government departments and multi-national PLCs.

The below list is a representative sample of projects undertaken to date:


British Army – Multi Role Vessels

 

Warbeck completed the building of 4x 18 meter vessels.

The vessels are constructed of steel hulls and aluminum upper structures. The bulwarks and superstructure are connected to the steel decks using a special steel / aluminum transition joint.

The internal fit out proved challenging due to the amount of equipment the army required.

Mersey Travel Gangways

Historically the Mersey Ferry gangways were operated manually, assisted with counter weights. However, due to the changes in Health and Safety manual handling laws, a new system was required.

Silver Jubilee Bridge

The Silver Jubilee Bridge links Widnes and Runcorn across the River Mersey and is in constant use 24 hours a day.

Warbreck completed structural steel strengthening work across the full span below the roadway. This project involved extensive repairs and grit blasting and application of specialist coatings on site at the Silver Jubilee bridge.

The project involved the survey and inspection of the underside of the roadway structure, reporting on condition and scoping repairs and replacements.

Repairs were undertaken in a phased manner over a series of months, ensuring traffic disruption was kept to a minimum.

Media Swing Bridge

Warbreck Engineering & Construction completed the full design, fabrication and installation of the controls system as part of Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering Ltd.’s team. This mechanically driven, 800 tonne, cable-stayed swing bridge (83m long) was installed across the Manchester Ship Canal at Salford Quays, Manchester. The asymmetric single span cable stayed swing footbridge will provide a clear navigable passage of 30m span, across the Manchester Ship Canal, when open to waterway traffic. The bridge creates a pedestrian access from Peel Media City BBC Studios to Granada Studios and the Imperial War Museum. Warbreck designed, manufactured and installed the hydraulic and PLC control systems, which operate the bridge swing mechanism. The rotation system for the bridge was also manufactured, installed serviced by Warbreck.

Warbreck  carry out a through-life maintenance service on the bridge contracted with Peel Media.

Canning River Entrance

During the restoration of the Albert Dock in the early 80’s a new dock gate and operating system was fitted.

During 2006-2007, as main contractors to BWW Warbreck completed the half-life refurbishment of the complete installation. This work involved designing and building a large cofferdam in the river Mersey and a second cofferdam inside Canning Dock. This enabled the removal of the dock gate.

Warbreck utilised the Mersey Mammoth 260 tonne, floating crane to remove the gate and transport the gate to our shipyard for overhaul and painting. The sluice bridge allowing pedestrian access across the lock entrance was removed for overhaul. The complete control and hydraulic system was removed and overhauled, including the large dock leveling sluice gate. On completion the temporary cofferdams were removed.

Rochdale Canal Floating Towpath

Warbreck Engineering & Construction was approached by BWW to find a solution and supply a removable Tow Path inside a tunnel passing under the M62 motorway.

When the M62 was built, it cut off the Rochdale Canal, but, due to the re-development of canals in the past decade BWW purchased a cattle movement tunnel from a local farmer and diverted the canal through the tunnel.

The problem being, that if a permanent towpath was fitted, then wide beam vessels could not pass through the tunnel.

The requirement was for a removable towpath that would be stable enough to allow cattle to transit the tunnel safely. We designed and built 3, 15 meter pontoons that coupled together to form the required 45 meter towpath. Once towed in position, each 15 meter unit has four hydraulic jacking legs that lift the pontoon in the water to create a stable path.
