Kirkstead Bridge - Woodall Spa

Client: Lincolnshire County Council

Work on the bridge began by  removing (planing) all existing surfacing and sand carpet, along with the removal of the existing failed waterproofing layer. The deck was then prepared (under traffic management) and the new waterproofing applied together with new expansion joints, sand carpet and bituminous road base with HRA surface course.

In addition to the bridge deck works we also completed  over 200 concrete repairs to the parapet bases and soffits, this necessitated working from water on a floating pontoon to access the underneath of  bridge.
All the steel work was painted along with the replacement of street light columns and new ducting work.

Mundesley Beach

The December 2013 storm surge caused significant damage to the defences of North Norfolk. In particular a portion of the revetment above beach level at the east end of Mundesley in front of the Fishermen’s hardstand area was virtually demolished.

The works comprised of the removal of a section of failed timber revetment, construction of a new timber beach access ramp and the construction of two rock sills.

“This hardwood timber beach access ramp constructed by CG Godfrey at Mundesley in North Norfolk serves the local fishing fraternity and the private Lifeboat and was funded by the Marine Management Organisation (via the local FLAG) and North Norfolk District Council. The whole project from inception to completion had to be  implemented within a given timeframe and the finished product is a credit to the contractors project team”

Sheringham Fishermen's Gangway

Client: North Norfolk District Council
Sheringham Fisherman's Gangway

In December 2014 North Norfolk District Council awarded a contract to C.G.Godfrey Ltd to carry out the refurbishment of the existing dilapidated Fisherman’s Ramp at the beach in Sheringham, the work was to be carried out through out January to March 2015.

The work comprised of the breaking up and the removal of approx 600m2 of 200mm thick concrete paving and the laying of 200mm thick new concrete paving with a single layer of A393 mesh reinforcement, all to a slope of approximately 20m bays, hand finished to form a non-slip slightly convex stepped surface and completed with a stiff brush horizontally across the full width, to make the ramp safer for the fishermen to walk up and down. Galvanised eyes were cast into the surface for shackles to be attached in order tie boats.

The old Winch House required demolishing and was replaced with a new building. Additional electrical works were undertaken including flood lighting. Despite the time of year, and the inclement weather condition, the work was carried out and completed successfully to the full satisfaction of both the Council and the local fishermen. The contract was administered on behalf of North Norfolk District Council by NPS Property Consultants Ltd of Norwich.
