The two coastal defence schemes, awarded through the SCAPE Civil Engineering framework, are worth nearly £20m.
The Cromer Phase 2 scheme will see Balfour Beatty construct a new rock armour revetment on the Norfolk coast on the west of Cromer pier, with 38,000 tonnes of rock placed on the shoreline.
As part of the Mundesley Coastal Management Scheme, Balfour Beatty will place 36,000 tonnes of rock on the shoreline, complete remedial works to the existing sea walls as well as refurbish the groynes – perpendicular structures to manage the flow of sediment.
On completion, the schemes will protect 600 local homes and businesses in North Norfolk from flooding and coastal erosion.
Peter Mumford, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty’s UK Construction Regional Civils business, said that works on both schemes were due to commence this winter with completion expected in early 2025.
At construction peak, the schemes will employ a workforce of around 50, including 4 apprenticeship, graduate, and trainee positions.
