Funafuti waterfront reclamation area

Following on from a number of successfully completed projects in Tuvalu, our team was contracted once again in 2015 to dredge approximately 35,000m3 of sand and limestone from the existing lagoon. This material was pumped to a reclamation area along the coastline, with works including the construction of sand containers on both sides of the 16,000m2 area.

Our team also carried out replenishment works along a narrow strip of the rocky foreshore, creating a valuable beach for the residents of Funafuti.
