The Project

Another casualty of the winter storms of 2014 was this privately owned sea wall located on the beach forming a garden boundary.  Most of the old concrete structure was demolished by the waves, leaving only a short section standing.  Behind the wall, decking, steps, retaining features and a summerhouse were also badly damaged or completely washed away.

Repairs to the sea wall utilised high specification reinforced concrete to an improved cross section designed to provide greater resistance to damage from the waves.  The sections of old sea wall that lay buried in the sand were broken up and re-used to provide wave protection along the front of the new wall.  All the damaged garden features were reconstructed

Although the start of the works was delayed due to seasonal weather and the prospect of further storm damage, the contract was completed on time and within budget to reinstate this usable area of the property.
