    Our work comprised constructing a reinforced concrete retaining wall to stabilize the adjacent access road. This in turn was supported by a gravity retaining wall that had failed.

    Elements included:

    • A reinforced concrete retaining wall and capping beam, approx. 160m in length.
    • Vehicle containment, kerbs and drainage works.
    • Resurfacing and paving works.
    • Temporary propping to install kerb bedding and pavement reinstatement.
    • Traffic management (TM).
    • Removing historic/heritage railings for refurbishment, repair and repainting prior to reinstallation.

    We understood that the success of the project would be highly dependent on the effective management of the public including local residents and in particular, the adjacent ‘frontagers’ on the upper service road. Mary Feilding Guild assisted living centre is also located on this service road and pedestrian access had to be maintained throughout for all residents. Other key stakeholders, including local businesses, Highgate Primary School and road users were also central to our planning and management.

    Our project manager served as our designated stakeholder liaison officer, focusing on two-way communication, managing expectations, and resolving issues effectively.

    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.
