Langstone Coastal Defence Scheme Update - May 2021
Announcing the appointment of Detailed Design Professional Services
Since our last update, the project team have been preparing to appoint the specialist support of professional services to deliver the development of the project through the next phase of detailed design.
We have been working to bring in the specialist services of a design consultant, Heritage and Archaeological Support, Early Contractor Involvement, and a Cost Consultant.
We are pleased to announce that, following competitive procurement undertaken on behalf of Havant Borough Council, the following companies have been successful in their appointment to the following roles.
- Detailed Design Consultant and Landscape Architect – AECOM
- Heritage and Archaeological Support – Wessex Archaeology
- Cost Consultant – Faithful & Gould
- Early Contractor Involvement – JT Mackley & Co Ltd
We will shortly be welcoming these professionals to the project, which allows us to continue to develop the outline designs with them and the Langstone community.
“It’s great to have professional services in place for the next stage of the Langstone project. With these secured, the defence design can be developed in more detail and Havant Borough Council can further consult on the conservation of Langstone’s heritage. I am also pleased to welcome back AECOM, this is a unique flood defence project and AECOM’s re-appointment ensures there will be continuation and understanding throughout the progression of the scheme.” – Lyall Cairns, Head of Coastal Services, Havant Borough Council
