    A boathouse was first built on the eastern side of Burry Port Harbour in 1887. Having been closed in 1914, it reopened in 1973 following an increase in drowning incidents.

    In September 2019, Burry Port’s new boathouse to accommodate its two lifeboats, was opened with improved volunteer facilities, increased capacity for school and group visits, and incorporating a visitor experience and shop.

    The new Atlantic 85 class inshore lifeboat, The Misses Barrie, replaced the station’s Atlantic 75 in June 2019.

    Knights Brown was appointed to extend the concrete slipway that would allow the Atlantic 85 to launch successfully into Carmarthen Bay. Our work was completed ahead of schedule, allowing the all-important sea trials to begin.

    This complex and challenging project was a collaborative undertaking from the outset. Combining two projects was inspirational, saving not only money but diverting 22,000m3 from landfill. Some extremely innovative tools and methods were used to demolish the pier, recover material and to achieve the lowest environmental impact on one of the most environmentally designated places in the UK.

    Knights Brown was a great client to deal with. We felt from the very outset that they worked with us rather than for us, demonstrating real collaboration in order to minimise disruption to the port. The works were also delivered through a very challenging time, with the latter stages coinciding with the COVID-19 pandemic. Their approach to this was thoroughly professional, with health and safety the primary consideration. Working practices were strictly amended and monitored, with the project completed to the satisfaction of all involved.
