This tourist hotspot was revisited and revamped.
Located next to the Houses of Parliament and surrounded by iconic landmarks such as the London Eye, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben… Westminster Pier is central to it all.
The pier is regularly utilised by commuter river services and recreational cruise tours, and thanks to Dura Composites is now fully accessible by a wide range of different users. Several years ago, the pier was fitted with our first-generation slab flooring. Although it served its purpose well, an increase in usage of the site meant that over time, the wooden substructure supporting the deck began to warp and rot. A phone call was placed to our experienced Marine team to help support the upgrade works. Using our Dura Profile, with its clever non-corrosive and lightweight nature, the team were able to quickly take out the rotting timber and install a GRP substructure that will last for decades.
Our d² Dura Profile structural profiles are non-conductive, non-corrosive and chemically resistant and are a logical and cost-effective alternative to steel, wood or other conventional materials. We carry one of the largest stock holdings of GRP profiles in the country including Tube, Box, I-Beam, Channel and Angle sections.
Not satisfied with simply replacing the rotting timber, our ingenious Marine team also decided to use the opportunity presented by the renovation window to re-grit the existing slab flooring to provide an even longer life span. When you have issues with your rotting timber substructures or bridge decks and don’t know who to call… our Marine team are always on hand to support you. Their calm professionalism and decades of experience in the industry means you can always rely on them to help.
