The team at SIS were responsible for the design, engineering and supply of Australia’s first boardwalk constructed entirely of recycled and reclaimed materials – not including fixings. Following on from this, SIS has continued to innovate when it comes to construction materials, fixings and brackets having now manufactured all of these items from composite materials. This now allows SIS to offer the stakeholder a boardwalk system with a design life in excess of 100 years with minimal maintenance throughout this period.

SIS can just supply superior sustainable construction materials along with design and engineering capabilities, or a full turnkey solution including project management and installation on any boardwalk project. Either way, our award winning installation team stands by to assist in giving advice along with our engineers and designers when planning your boardwalk project. In our experience, the majority of pedestrian structures are installed not in sand or water, but in different and varying types of earth.

When encountering poor soil conditions on a site it may be necessary to transfer the building loads to deeper more stable soils. Determining the most effective and economical solution to this problem will generally involve an investigation of the soil conditions which is typically done with geotechnical assessment. This assessment is performed to obtain data that provides the soil type, the organic layers and depth to bedrock, it can also help determine the proper depth for installing piles based on the information discovered within the geotech report. Once the soil conditions and load requirements are known. SIS will design a structure based on the area sensitivities, client outcome requirements but also the structure and bearing strength of the soil.
