Coastal management

With many towns and cities based on the fringes of Britain’s coastline, the impact on buildings and infrastructure from violent seas can be devastating and costly. Our coastal management expertise can help minimise and prevent tidal and saltwater damage.

When it comes to managing the coastlines, one of the main considerations for a local authority or commissioning agency is to reduce the risk of watercourse pollution.

Working in a tidal zone presents a unique set of risks that must be factored into the maintenance, repair or building of new sea defence structures. This is where our experience comes into its own.
