Team Van Oord Hosted RICS at Shoreham Adur

Members of Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) South East have been shown around the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme in the latest of a series of visits to sites where Team Van Oord is working on behalf of the Environment Agency.

Taking place on 21 October, the visit was hosted by Terry Gretton, Project Manager, and the visit comprised a site tour followed by a presentation of the scheme, where work is expected to continue until 2018.

Andy Bosman, E3 Project Manager, gave a detailed account of the piling works that were being carried out at the time at E3.

The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme is being delivered by Team Van Oord and on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.

The scheme has a high profile within the local community as areas of Shoreham were flooded in 2013. The design addresses the current flood risk, and future risk as sea levels rise.

Under the scheme improvements will be carried out along 7.2km of defences along the River Adur between Shoreham Old Fort and the A27, to significantly improve protection from tidal flooding to properties and businesses on both banks of the river.

The visit by RICS was one of a number hosted by Team Van Oord in recent weeks. On 24 October, students from the University of Brighton visited the Clay’s Lake scheme to gain a valuable glimpse of ‘what collaborative engineering work looks like’.
