    Gatwick Airport Limited


    Gatwick Airport, Sussex



    Knights Brown has been appointed to install an HDPE bird netting system over a 550m stretch of stream within the confines of Gatwick Airport. The netting is 15m wide and is installed on tensioned wire spanning galvanised posts that are inserted into the river bank.

    136 steel sections will be pre-augered and driven to a depth of up to 3m. Maintenance work will be facilitated by the construction of access ramps and gates.

    Our works also include environmental mitigation comprising regrading and stabilising the river bank, installation of log flow deflectors and pre-vegetated coir rolls and tree planting.

    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.
