Pontoon rental for five star floating hotel in Londons Docklands.

Custom EZ Dock rental layout with Railings

A luxury floating hotel required a pontoon installed for the duration of the making of a promotional video. The Hotel is situated in Royal Victoria Dock adjacent to Excel. The pontoon needed to go around an overhanging steel walkway and moor to the basin wall.

Access from basin wall onto the pontoon.

The drop from the dock side to the pontoon was to be bridged by a 5.5m x 1.5m aluminium gangway. The pontoon needed to have safety railings around the entire perimeter as access to the water was  not required.

5.5m Gangway leading down to the pontoon from the Basin wall.

The pontoon was craned over the dock wall with railings attached where applicable and into the Basin before being connected together and finally the gangway installed.

The following day the entire pontoon system was removed by craning it out of the basin section by section.
