    This scheme provides flood protection for a 1:200 year storm event to 1,471 residential properties and preserves the important habitats found in the Sandy Point nature reserve.

    Elements comprised:

    • Construction of a 650 metre rock revetment and three new rock groynes
    • Refurbishment of a concrete splash wall
    • Improving year round access arrangements
    • Raising the level of the beach with over 35,000 tonnes of imported material

    We participated in extensive public liaison and community engagement activities, which included regular litter picking and visits with local schools.

    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.
