Perfectly matched: A Smith crane and barge afloat on Lyttelton Harbour, with tug boat Joe Man alongside.


Marine works have always been a part of the Smith Crane and Construction's core work through our piling and foundation operation within the civil engineering division.

We are able to carry out tasks such as:

  • Wharf construction
  • Sheet piling
  • Wharf demolition and removal
  • Dredging
  • Full harbour development

In 2012 the civil engineering division acquired tug boat Joe Mann together with a fleet of flexi floats to form a variety of barge configurations for working afloat. The barge is capable of carrying a 100-tonne crawler crane enabling demolition, maintenance and construction works from the water.
