Project Management: Team Van Oord
Contract Value: £0.5m
Description: River protection works, flood prevention bunds, accesses and drainage works
Duration: 30 weeks
Quantity Moved: 120,000m3
Working as the Earthworks Subcontractor to Team Van Oord, Kelston Sparkes completed this Environment Agency funded flood defence project in October 2015.
The Congresbury Yeo project involved the construction of new flood defence bunds along the tidal river, with material being excavated from borrow pits creating wetland ponds.
Kelston Sparkes assisted with the modelling of all the bunds and developing the cut-fill balance. All works were then undertaken with our GPS enabled equipment, negating the requirement for setting out.
