Cliff Stability Assessment

A decommissioned lighthouse, together with an associated 6.6 hectares of cliff and coastline, was to be sold. As part of a pre-purchase review of the property, a geotechnical assessment of the cliff beneath and around the property including, in particular, the access track was required.

The assessment comprised a detailed desk study and walkover survey that was able to provide a qualitative assessment of the areas of concern, together with remedial and maintenance recommendations and illustrative costs.

Importantly, the report was issued within a week of our site visit, which was promptly attended, and was within an acceptable budget to the client, whilst at the same time providing comprehensive recommendations and cost appraisals.

Subsequently, additional investigation using rope access was carried out to inspect parts of the cliff that were not visible from the road. This information was used to produce a management plan and to provide more detailed information on the costs of the remedial works, monitoring and maintenance.
