    Knights Brown was appointed to carry out the works to protect and maintain a 76m section of Weymouth’s harbour walls. The project included:

    • Demolishing a brick and concrete kiosk
    • Driving a new line of steel sheet piles immediately in front of the quay wall
    • Filling the void between the wall and the new line of piles and capping with concrete
    • Restoring the quayside and installing new furniture and safety equipment and steps to improve access to mooring vessels

    Due to piling taking place in proximity to residences and businesses, close cooperation and communication with the community was essential. As part of this effort, we created a bespoke public information board.

    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.
