Frederick Sherrell Limited were asked to undertake a detailed geotechnical assessment of the cliff face next to the proposed new lifeboat station and to use that assessment to prepare a detailed specification, drawings and bill of quantities for the rockfall protection works. These works were to be completed prior to the construction of the lifeboat station.
The cliff works were carried out in 2014 by specialist cliff works contractors (BamRitchies Limited). The works included vegetation removal, scaling , netting and rock anchoring. Regular visits were made to the site by an engineering geologist by Frederick Sherrell Limited to answer geotechnical queries and to make sure the works were carried out in accordance with the specification.
