The client wished to reduce ongoing liabilities to allow land adjoining river frontage to be developed. MLM arranged, administered and supervised demolition of 6 old timber jetties, then advised on stability of adjacent river walls, prepared feasibility study, designed, administered and supervised construction of new river wall and revetment to stabilise the flood defences.

The key element of this project was an absolute deadline for construction and final account settlement.  In partnership with the client, MLM took a pro-active risk management approach to the design and contractual arrangements with total success.
