PIANC welcomes our latest Corporate Member, Maritime Constructions.
“As a marine infrastructure contractor, we will benefit greatly from understanding and contributing to the climate change adaptation strategies being discussed at PIANC.”
Based in SA & WA, Maritime Constructions has been working on specialist marine infrastructure solutions around the country since 1996, successfully completing hundreds of marine projects, including the award-winning ( EA Excellence 2012) design and construction of Anthon’s Landing Jetty in Wyndham WA.

For Imran Lambay, GM of Western Region, joining PIANC makes great business sense. “Now more than ever,” he says, “with the climate changing our planet, PIANC has a major role to play in re-designing marine infrastructure to tackle the effects of sea level rise. As a marine infrastructure contractor, we will benefit greatly from understanding and contributing to the climate change adaptation strategies being discussed at PIANC.”
Maritime Constructions provides a broad spectrum of services including wharf and jetty design and construction, capital and maintenance dredging, reclamation, aids to navigation, sub-sea pipelines, heavy fabrication and marine maintenance services. Lambay says the company’s diverse mix of staff with marine and civil disciplines means it has the capacity to design, engineer, manage and self-execute the most challenging marine projects.
Maritime Constructions has been awarded several CCF Earth Awards – for restoration of shellfish reefs at Windara Reef in Gulf St Vincent WA (2019), construction of the Semaphore Park Offshore Breakwater (2010), construction of the Rapid Bay Jetty (2009) and dredging of the River Torrens and the Murray Mouth (2004).
The company, along with its client, The Nature Conservancy, is extremely proud of its most recent CCF (SA 2019) award. South Australia once had native oyster reefs along 1,500 km of its coastline. Over harvesting in the 1800s resulted in the collapse of these reefs. Construction of the 20-hectare Windara Reef in Gulf St Vincent (pictured below) was the largest artificial shellfish reef in Australia. Maritime Constructions were proud to play a small part in restoring this vital ecosystem.
