Improvements to Stackpole Quay, Stackpole, Pembrokeshire
Client: The National Trust
Services Provided: Project Management; Civil Engineering
Project: Stackpole Quay is a 19th century structure originally built for the import and export of goods to and from the Stackpole Estate. The quay is now owned by the National Trust and within an SSSI. Civil engineering remedial works were required to the quay walls.
Characteristics: Stackpole Quay supports a thriving local fishing community and the project was commissioned to improve facilities for the fishermen. Their advice was sought on certain works, including mooring point locations, rock clearance on beach, and the re-profiling of shingle. In addition, sensitivity needed to be shown to the nature of Stackpole Quay. As well as having historical significance it is a popular tourist attraction, the base for many educational and 'adventure' activities, and the location of upmarket holiday cottages. All these elements had to be considered in the management and successful completion of this project.
