Livett’s Group are providing ongoing marine support for what stands to be the biggest marine civil engineering project in the history of the River Thames. So far, we have provided barges, pontoons, safety boats, tug hire and marine consultancy to ensure the project has run smoothly.


Livett’s had a team of 20 professionals working around the clock at the Blackfriars Rail Bridge redevelopment project that began in 2010. From the project start, Livett’s Group provided moorings for cranes, barges and lay-by requirements using a variety of flat top barges. We also transported spoil and materials to and from the site including bridge sections, scrap metal, cranes, steelwork and cargo.


Livett’s Group provided essential marine services for the extensions of both Westminster and Bankside piers. These extremely busy and centrally located London piers were extended for the benefit of Thames Clippers, with the view of increasing passenger numbers on the River Thames. Livett’s provided a range of services on these projects, including towage of jack-up barges and safety boats.
