WHAT WE DO

With global warming now impacting significantly on tidal movements, currents, waves, wind patterns, water levels and sediment supply, many Pacific Island nations are facing the threat of erosion, flooding and ecosystem imbalances.

To mitigate the impacts of climate change, Hall Pacific is able to design and implement adaptation strategies that improve coastal resilience and reduce vulnerability amongst our Pacific Island neighbours.

Our capabilities include:

Coastal Protection

We bolster coastal defences through beach replenishment and marine structures such as groynes, seawalls and breakwaters. Our team can adapt to a wide variety of beach erosion issues, developing a customised solution to suit even the most complex of problems.

Infrastructure delivery

Whether it’s building or expanding a jetty, installing mooring dolphins to assist with mooring vessels, or repairing damaged roads and causeways, we possess the knowledge and capabilities to successfully deliver a broad range of civil and marine infrastructure.

FLOOD MITIGATION DREDGING

Our team is experienced in undertaking flood mitigation dredging in rivers and waterways to lessen the impact of flooding in severe weather events. These works decrease the cost of damage to infrastructure and also minimise the threat of tropical waterborne diseases by enabling water to flow to the ocean without obstruction.

Land reclamation

Our team has a successful track record in creating usable land from sand dredged from waterways, bays and coral atolls using our fleet of cutter suction dredges and earthmoving equipment. These works enable the expansion of key coastal land areas and adjoining waterways, and allow low-lying nations threatened by rising sea levels to increase the height of their land areas.

WHERE WE WORK

Since our inception in 1946, Hall Pacific has grown from a one-man contracting business on Australia’s east coast to an international company with offices in the Pacific Islands, South East Asia and Australia.

Our team is experienced in working everywhere from busy tourist ports and harbours, right through to remote island locations.

At present, we have a range of dredges and ancillary equipment based in the Pacific Islands, including cutter suction dredges, work boats, a tug boat, accommodation barge and support equipment including excavators, dozers and trucks

This allows us to mobilise our team and equipment promptly and efficiently, ensuring we can quickly reach any Pacific Island locations including (but not limited to):

How we work

At Hall Pacific, we recognise that self-sufficiency is important to Pacific Island communities.

Our team members work hard to improve the quality of life of locals through climate change adaptation and employment opportunities, and are committed to caring for the environment so communities can be sustained for years to come.

We are proud to:

Improve the quality and living standards of local communities

Whether it’s reducing flooding and pollution, creating more useable land space or constructing marine or land transport infrastructure, we contribute positively to the living conditions within Pacific Island communities, ultimately benefiting those that live and work in these areas.

Protect Pacific Island communities from the impacts of climate change

Our team successfully protects against severe weather events, designing and building seawalls that increase resistance against large waves and storm systems. Our land reclamation capabilities also enable us to safeguard Pacific Island communities against rising sea levels.

Support local economies

Rather than bringing a full team of staff with us from Australia, we source a high percentage of workers locally when working in the Pacific Islands. We pride ourselves on equipping local residents with new skills and creating employment opportunities in areas such as marine engineering, machinery operation and diving.

Care for the environment

With many Pacific Islanders rely on agricultural practices for their food supply and livelihood; we understand the importance of looking after the ecosystems we work in. Our team is experienced in carrying out environmental impact assessments to ensure any environmental issues are managed effectively. Our dredging and civil construction solutions always take into account the health and prosperity of the surrounding natural environment.v

What our clients say

Hall Contracting has to date carried out the works professionally with minimal issues despite the significant challenges associated with undertaking a dredging and remediation project in such a remote location. Hall Contracting has maintained effective communication with a variety of stakeholders throughout the project which has been critical to the current success of the project.
