    £20m over five years

    Knights Brown’s appointment to the framework is for the management and implementation of civil engineering works (both landside and marine) including design, inspection, testing, maintenance, survey, repair and new build.

    Landside includes small works relating to the planned maintenance of port assets; reactive/emergency works with response periods determined by the criticality of the affected asset; and standalone projects for core planned maintenance such as large scale resurfacing.

    Marine includes a wide range of maintenance issues including sheet piling repairs and installation, cathodic protection, repairs to piers, dolphins, quay walls and fenders, underwater inspections, mooring bollards and lock gates.

    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.
