Pontoonworks are always pleased to be asked to help out with the environmental projects, recently we have assisted a local authority in the North of England to install an Eel pass with our pontoon system. Jetfloat is an environmentally friendly product and is the ideal solution for any project where welfare to aquatic life is essential.
Pontoonworks has recently installed 800m2 of pontoon to form a floating work platform. This pontoon will be used to assist our client with the assembly of a geomembrane roof, when the roof is finished it will be used to contain methane gas which will then be used to power one of the UKs largest factories.

Summer 2011 has been a busy one for the Pontoonworks team who installed numerous floating platforms and temporary bridges for both public and private events around the country. Among these were the entry and exit swim platforms for three of the UK’s largest and most prestigious triathlons held in London.
The 2011 DSEi exhibition attracted thousands of visitors and dignitaries from around the world to the ExCel centre in London’s docklands. So that they could view the latest maritime crafts and naval equipment in the water Pontoonworks installed a dedicated display jetty as well as a specially designed hovercraft landing platform.
Engineering consultants and contractors in south Wales have recently discovered the benefits of Pontoonworks innovative ideas. Working in a water filled quarry the drilling platform we provided was easily reformatted into a jetty when the client’s needs changed. An excavator pontoon and skip pontoon have been since been added to their hire inventory for a complete solution to working on water.

“……he had a whole ballroom built over his private lake. Now get this, apparently it took a week to build and three days to come down. Cut glass chandeliers, silk and see-through lace curtains, stages, dance floor, lighting etc. As you would expect, the dinner itself was spectacular . . . "
Pontoonworks has secured a £500K MoD contract to provide security protection and access. This was an in-depth project for our design team and detailed stress analysis was required to validate our recommendations.
