Sea Defences

Constructing effective sea defences to control sea erosion and flooding has been a challenge for people for many hundreds of years.

Being based on the Isle of Wight, Emerald Construction have carried out many flood and coastal protection projects over the years. We consider ourselves to be leading coastal / sea defence contractors that undertake projects across the UK. There are a number of alternatives when there is an erosion or flooding problem. Whether it be to build sea defence walls at the edge of the shore, or build forward using groynes, beach nourishment or replenishment.

We have worked on a great many varying sea defences projects from the formation of sea walls to creating harbours, groynes and land reclamation. If you want to know more about our sea defence construction work, just simply drop us a message and one of our experts will get in touch.
