Inlet Flood Gates, Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, Sheet Pile Cofferdam

Shoreham Inlet Flood GatesSheet pile cofferdam


Supply, install and extract steel sheet piles to form a cofferdam through an existing flood embankment to allow the installation of a new flood control structure. Also installation of timber groyne piles into a mud flat area.


We were asked to install steel sheet piles using one of our side grip piling rig on an Environment Agency flood scheme.

The access to the site was very minimal and suited our flexible equipment.

The sheet piles were installed to depth successfully and allowed our customer dry access to construct their structure. Once they had completed this and backfilled it we returned to site and extracted the piles.

In the mud flat area on the outlet side of the works, working within tidal windows we installed timber groyne piles to replace the existing.

This scheme was completed successfully and on time.
