Pittenweem, Breakwater Protection

United Kingdom

Breakwater Protection

The concrete caisson breakwater extension at Pittenweem had suffered base underscour and failure of the foundation bedding stone, causing settlement of caisson 3 of some 0.2m.

The foundation was reinstated by underbase grouting of the caissons, assisted by Proserve’s grout bag perimeter seals, along with subsequent pattern grouting of the caisson fill.
