Scour Protection 

Don’t let watercourses get in the way of a stable and successful project – we can carry out a wide range of scour protection works and give your structures the clean bill of health.

Introduction to Scour Protection

Scour protection involves the removal of sediment such as sand and dirt from structures that frequently come into contact with water, whether above or below the water line. This process is crucial to ensuring the longevity of any site, which can rapidly degrade if left to fend for itself against relentless attack from water.

Using tried and tested technology, we deliver a comprehensive scour protection service from start to finish. Our experts use their experience and knowledge to provide detailed surveys, innovative system design, implementation and project management, taking responsibility for saving and protecting structures from nearby water.

Our team are also prepared for emergencies and short-notice projects, so we can react quickly without compromising safety or quality. We can guarantee our work will deliver as promised, no matter how short a time scale you’re working to.
