Coastal contractor Birse has won contracts worth around £55M for the design and construction of Anchorsholme & Rossall Coast Protection Works in North West England.
The project team will now work on design briefs, public consultations and submitting planning applications.
The contracts were procured by a team comprising Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Borough Councils.
Blackpool council’s Anchorsholme Coast Protection Scheme will rebuild 1km of concrete seawall and a two-tier promenade with landscaping.
Wyre Council’s Rossal Coastal Defence Scheme will rebuild approximately 1.9km of rock armour and concrete seawall, rock and timber groynes, and landscaping details.
Birse Managing Director Mark Farrah said: “The award of this contract brings the total value of our coastal protection works to some £280M and marks the installation of our 16,500th signature precast unit.”
