OUR MARINE CIVIL ENGINEERING SERVICES
Planning and consultancy
We offer a consultancy and planning service for marine civil engineering on the Thames. Our local knowledge and expertise has given us the ability to advise on what can and can’t be done.
Over the years Livett’s have been heavily involved in the maintenance and construction of various London bridges. We have the specialist craft suitable for working around and underneath various sized bridges.
Safety boat hire
Livett’s have a range of safety boats available for a range of marine civil engineering tasks on the Thames. All are licensed by the PLA and carry the appropriate level of safety equipment.
We have varying sized tugs available depending on the size of the tow. Livett’s are happy to recommend which tug is most suitable for your needs; please visit our Fleet page to see more about our tugs.
The ideal way to transfer goods on the Thames is via barge. Livett’s boast an impressive fleet of barges which range in capacity from 80 tonnes to 1,500 tonnes.
Livett’s have a fleet of various-sized pontoons and barges to fit a client’s needs. If we do not have a suitable barge suitable, then we will happily build one bespoke – something we have done on numerous occasions.
All tows on the River Thames require detailed passage planning. Livett’s offer a service to carry out this passage plan before any tow takes place. Our passage plans meet the required standards of the PLA.
Safety comes first
All marine civil engineering projects require risk assessments. Livett’s can offer bespoke risk assessments to suit the requirements of the relevant stakeholders, such as the PLA.
