This PEFC Keruing has been machined to our client’s specification and is now ready in our Trafford Park sawmill awaiting delivery to Southend where it will be used for repairs to Southend Pier.
Keruing is an ideal timber for use in pier construction due to its load bearing strength, its hardness and its durability.
The Pier has been an attraction of Southend since 1830. Unfortunately throughout the years it has suffered some damage through wear and tear, storms etc. There has been a large amount of repairs to the pier and the Council is set to continue its major investment, with a further £11.5m proposed to be spent on maintenance, repairs and major improvements of the Pier over the next four years.
