Victoria and Alfred Waterfront: Marine works infrastructure

Core marine engineering consultants to the professional team, in which capacity they have been involved with various projects in the waterfront.

Whilst retaining the working aspects of the harbour, namely fishing, ship repair and tug berthing, the docklands have been upgraded with a mix of retail, commercial, hotel and residential development.
