An existing floating canoe launching platform at Middle Swan Reserve was damaged by a flood in early 2017. The City of Swan engaged Advanteering to undertake design review and carry out modifications and strengthening including to all connections to minimize reoccurrence of similar damage from future floods. Repairs and modifications were completed to the existing platform before it was reinstated at Middle Swan Reserve in September 2017.


The project included the following aspects:

  • Design review focusing on actions from flood events; allowed reuse of the existing fixed platform and piles;
  • Shop modifications including straightening and recycling of the existing frame;
  • Repairs and reconfiguring of the existing pontoon followed by reinstallation at Middle Swan Reserve;
  • Working in an environmentally sensitive location (Swan River).
