    The bridge will be constructed using off-site prefabrication methods and will be transported down the river, rather than by road, to reduce carbon consumption and to minimise disruption to the surrounding area.

    It has been designed with durability, maintainability and aesthetic appeal in mind, and will be made with high-quality materials and finishes, fitting to its prominent position along the Thames.

    The bridge will offer views of Dukes Hollow nature reserve, a natural tidal foreshore that contains diverse waterside flora and is home to two nationally rare snails.

    The natural foreshore is one of only two remaining in London and the pedestrian bridge will improve access to a peaceful part of the Thames Path.

    The bridge is part of the Dukes Meadows Masterplan, a series of proposals to improve the park’s facilities for sport, transport and access, in 187 acres of land adjacent to the River Thames and downstream of Barnes Bridge.

    our sectors

    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.

    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.
