CAN facilitates Fort Bovisand redevelopment

September 18, 2020

RSK company CAN Geotechnical’s work on the historic Fort Bovisand redevelopment in Devon, UK, has been featured in GeoDrilling International magazine.

CAN was awarded the contract to undertake geotechnical stabilisation work at the historic Fort Bovisand earlier this year and brought both its specialist access capability and drilling expertise to the redevelopment of the 170-year-old Victorian fort. This heritage structure at Wembury is being turned into 81 apartments by Fort Bovisand Developments Ltd, which is owned by former BBC Director General Greg Dyke. The development will also include an events space, a bistro and a visitors’ centre.

Before the redevelopment work could be carried out, specialist slope stabilisation work was required. The GeoDrilling International article explores how CAN undertook the stabilisation measures and soil nailing required, including using in-house developed technology to suspend drill rigs on winches, and the strict environmental controls that were followed.

“Following the stabilisation of both gullies, the access road is now safely stabilised, the weight limit can be removed and other contractors involved with the main development can begin their work,” notes GeoDrilling International.

You can read the full article in the September issue of GeoDrilling International, p. 8.
