Project name

Hythe Firing Ranges

Location

Hythe, Kent

Client

Ministry of Defence – M.O.D.

Description of Project

Detailed risk analysis study leading to detailed design and site supervision of emergency repair works to the flood defences.

Considerations

The frontage consists of an existing timber groyne field with a dwindling supply of sediment, due to a reduced feed of beach material. This reduced protection led to the requirement of emergency repairs to the flood defences to ensure the frontage did not breach.

Outcome

Emergency repairs works successfully undertaken, restoring the flood defences along the damaged section of the frontage.
