Maker and Rame Institute and Clock Tower Kingsand Final Visit

This third video commissioned jointly by Celtic Construction and John Grimes Partnership describes the necessary works to both strengthen and heighten the sea wall. The existing wall is a tenuous defence. It not only protects the Institute and Clock Tower Building but also the village of Kingsand.

Further works to protect the building, as far as practical, from the vagaries of further storms, are planned for this week and next.

Maker and Rame Institute and Clock Tower Kingsand - Revisited

Severe storms on the 14th & 15th February 2014 further damaged the Kingsand clock tower and Rame Institute building. Huge stormwaves again breached the sea facing Institute wall and severely eroded the internal west wall of the building leaving the clocktower and indeed the whole building in a most precarious state. The interior of the institute became fully exposed and was severely battered by the large storm waves. It was evident that the clock tower was extremely close to being lost. Measurements indicated that the top of the tower moved some 15mm.

Maker and Rame Institute and Clock Tower Kingsand

JGP were commissioned, on the 7th February 2014, to engineer making safe the building and to protect it, as far as possible, from further storm damage. Celtic Construction were instructed to carry out the works, under JGP instruction. Over the weekend of Saturday the 8th and 9th of February, Celtic Construction worked in very difficult conditions to install props to remove the risk of immediate collapse.

Further works to protect the building, as far as practical, from the vagaries of further storms, are planned for this week and next.
