Weekly update – 30 June 2023
Last night we took out the highly commended accolade in the sustainability category of the 2023 Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards.

We’ve now placed a grand total of 14 of our pre-cast T-wall units in front of Bandstand Field. These will make up the curved wall in front of the field. There are 88 pre-cast T-wall units to install here so we will keep you updated on the progress.
We’ve completed the piling work that involved using a crane from a floating barge near Southsea Castle. This photo shows the barge at the start of the works. Four piles have now been installed in front of the rock, with navigation markers placed on top. This will provide navigation limits for daytime small craft, reducing the risk of them straying over the submerged rock at high water.
Definitely our cutest visitor to the office this week, Toby belongs to our marine project manager Tom from the design team. Toby loves walks but not as much as he loves people – always happy to give you lots of kisses and fuss.
He will love you even more if you bring a ball with you! His favourite snacks are strawberries and blueberries.
