About this event

The Valentine's Day storm of 2014 saw the destruction of 119 beach huts at Milford on Sea, Hampshire. The replacement huts, which are able to withstand 1:200 year storm wave conditions, provide durable, strong, accessible and a visually attractive facility for the hut owners and the general public, significantly enhancing the seafront.

The beach huts were completed in time for Summer 2017. The designers, represented by Paul Bulkeley (Snug Architects) and Damian Westlake (Ramboll), will describe how the project progressed through optioneering, design and construction phases and in particular how this holistic scheme integrated architecture with engineering.
