South Bank Quay


The South Bank Quay is part of the Teesworks Freeport project, which secured £107million in the UK Investment Bank’s first ever investment. With immediate access to the River Tees and the North Sea, the 1km quay will provide global firms with 500 acres of development land.


Bauer Technologies was appointed to undertake the piling and foundation works for the project. Specifically, Bauer Technologies, constructed the 156nos King Piles required to form the new quay wall.


A complex project, Bauer Technologies had many challenges to contend with, including adverse weather conditions, with often high winds effecting the many lifting operations. The ground conditions were also challenging, requiring long temporary casings to be installed for the king pile installation.


Despite the many challenges and the scale and tight schedule of the works, the project, which commenced on the 17 January 2022, was completed successfully on the 17 March 2023, on time, on budget and to the full satisfaction of the client.
