Projects underway

Marine infrastructure effects – improving coastal biodiversity (CON246)
CIRIA is the network coordinator to help promote and raise awareness of this project in order to maximise its uptake and potential benefits and impact.
 
Groynes in coastal engineering
The document would extend and update CIRIA’s existing guide, particularly in terms of maintenance and materials.
 

Project proposals

P3172 - Integration of non flood-defence-specific structures into the flood defence line
A small working group is being formed to help scope this study, which is likely to consist of a review of current information, plus a series of modules/ information sheets each describing a particular class of model applications and their assumptions
 
P3204 - Sea outfalls - inspection, assessment and repair
This project will produce an operators guide on the need for and the procurement or execution of survey and inspection activities together with associated repair and modifications.
 
P3203 - Thrust blocks on buried pressure pipelines
This project will review and update CIRIA's 1994 guide to the design of thrust blocks for buried pressure pipelines to reflect new materials - particularly polyethylene, practices and changes to standards and codes.
 
P3188 - Management of gully pots for improved runoff quality
A small working group is being formed to help scope this study, which is likely to consist of a review of current information, plus a series of modules/ information sheets each describing a particular class of model applications and their assumptions
