RNLI scheme wins Green Apple GOLD Award for Architectural Heritage

21 July 2015

RNLI

Mumbles new RNLI slipway lifeboat station and pier head refurbishment scheme has won the prestigious GOLD award for Built Environment & Architectural Heritage at the Green Apple Awards 2015. The scheme, designed by Opus International Consultants (Opus) in Fareham, was selected from over 200 entrants to receive this accolade, which is awarded by The Green Association to the greenest companies, councils and communities.

The derelict Victorian pier head was re-engineered to incorporate a new generation lifeboat station whilst preserving and re-using as much of the original features as possible. Alternative nesting ledges to accommodate the Kittiwake colony displaced from the pier head were attached to the old lifeboat station, adjacent to the pier, for the duration of the works. Driven piles were selected to avoid arisings associated with bored piles which would have smothered the nearby oyster beds.

Successfully commissioned in January/February 2014, the works provided the required enhanced rescue service as well as boosting tourist visits to the reopened pier head.
The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
