Gabion Baskets and Gabion Walls
Clients and engineers who prefer the look of gabion baskets and gabion walls for rock armouring as a form of erosion control, have turned to Gold Coast Barges to get the job done right.
Below are photos of a recent project in the Nerang River where the engineer has specified and designed a system of gabion baskets to minimise the effects of tide and wake.
It is a very busy area in the river with skiiing, jet skis and recreational boating, the banks were suffering and this project was put into place to correct the issue.
The excavator and barge do the preparation and final footing work and the 'rock wrangling' team ensure the baskets are neat , tidy and wired correctly for long lasting effect.
The barge and excavator work with a team of labourers to fill and wire up the baskets.
Environmental issues are dealt with correctly. Here is the silt curtain at work - see the clarity of the water beyond the silt curtain.
If this is the sort of project you are looking to complete- give us a call. We can put you in touch with the right engineers and do the job right the first time as specified in the engineer's approved drawings.
We ensure water quality and vegetation management are also done right- with a team of professionals to ensure you are covered legally and so your project can proceed as planned.
