BCI Awards/ Best Practice Award - High Commendation

High Commendation/ Cleveleys Coast Protection Phase Two

Commissioning authority: Wyre Borough Council
Principal designer: Faber Maunsell
Principal contractor: Birse Coastal

The success of this project must be attributed in large part to the commitment of client Wyre Borough Council to its desire to back quality over cost at every step of the procurement process.

As the authority’s biggest-ever civil-engineering project, the £11.2 million job has transformed a dated and largely dilapidated 1920s seafront.

The old sea wall, blocking the sea view, has made way for an attractive promenade that still protects the town from the sea on an exposed length of coastline.

The use of precast concrete to create high-strength abrasion-resistant units meant that a high-quality product could be delivered to site with less waste and greater safety.
