Roker Pier

The Practice has undertaken the inspection of many sea walls. We were appointed by Sunderland Council to inspect Roker pier and put together a maintenance plan as part of a scheme to repair and restore the Grade II listed pier, together with the lighthouse and connecting tunnel.

Roker pier and lighthouse together provide an excellent example of a large-scale Victorian engineering project.

The structure also contains the historically significant remains of a World War II military structure on the landward side of the lighthouse.  Our report was able to give options for structural repairs in the longer-term as well as suggesting actions needed during the immediate renovations such as concrete repairs.
