DAWSON-WAM have a longstanding proven track record implementing flood protection schemes for both the Department of Agriculture & Rural Development Rivers Agency within Northern Ireland and the Environment Agency within the UK. We can offer a complete in house design and build service for:

  • Conventional RC flood walls
  • Gravity structures
  • Sheet piled flood walls (vibration & vibrationless installation)
  • Secant piled flood walls

DAWSON-WAM have recently completed a landmark project for the DARD Rivers Agency in Moneymore, Northern Ireland. The project was awarded on the basis of an alternative design proposal consisting of a secant piled flood wall with a decorative 'natural stone look' concrete wall cast on top to the required flood protection level. There was restricted access with the flood wall requiring constructed within 300mm of existing dwellings from within the 5m wide river channel. Please view our case studies for further information.
