Flood Protection Works

Project name

Fingringhoe Firing Ranges

Location

Fingring, Essex

Client

Ministry of Defence – M.O.D.

Description of Project

Detailed design of flood defence improvement works at the Fingringhoe Firing ranges

Considerations

The deterioration and erosion of the existing flood embankment, which provided protection to the ranges behind, led to unacceptable high risk of breach and flooding of the M.O.D.’s land. Herrington Consulting were commissioned to design an environmentally sensitive solution to improve the defences.

Outcome

The completed scheme comprised enhancements made to the flood defences, which has consequently improved the standard of protection along the study frontage to meet the land owners indicative requirements.
