About this event

This joint CIWEM/ICE event is an exciting opportunity to see first-hand the construction phase of a major coastal protection scheme.

The principal Contractor is VBA, a joint venture between VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and Atkins, who have been appointed on behalf of Fylde Borough Council to undertake the works, funded by the Environment Agency.

Mike Pomfret (Project Manager, Fylde Borough Council) will talk about the project’s aims and design considerations at Fylde Borough Council offices.

After the presentation, the group will meet at the site compound to be taken around the construction site, which is at various stages of completion (please see PPE requirements below).
