Tucketts Clyce, Somerset

For Kier


As part of Somerset’s flood defences, TMS were called in to replace a failing outfall head wall along the bank
of the estuary at Tuckett’s Clyce in Somerset. Using 16m steel sheet piles, TMS constructed a new cofferdam
head wall directly in front of the original head wall, therefore allowing safe demolition of the failing
structure. In addition to the sheet piles, additional anchor piles were installed and attached with steel tie
bars to ensure no movement could occur.

Emergency Jetty

For Environment Agency

February 2014

The contract required immediate response to a relief programme, developed to respond to unprecedented flooding of the Somerset levels, as widely publicised in the international news media. Hundreds of homes and many farms in the surrounding villages were overwhelmed with floodwater and overflowing foul water, following a series of heavy storms over a number of weeks.
