Seawall Refurbishment at The River Hamble Completed

29.09.21

This project was for the refurbishment of the seawall at The River Hamble Harbour Master’s Office which was in desperate need of repair.

The seawall before the refurbishment work started

Due to the nature of the location of the seawall and the tides, in order for the site operatives to be able to repair the seawall they needed to construct a temporary sheet pile cofferdam; this was to lengthen the working window and to ensure that the working area was kept clean.

 

The cofferdam in place and the tight working area

The refurbishment works involved casting a concrete face to the existing wall to encourage biodiversity by mimicking a natural rockface. You can see the completed works below.
