New Lifeboat Station Selsey

Construction of a new lifeboat station at Selsey to house two vessels and associated crew accommodation.

The project was wholly funded by donations and legacies received by the RNLI, and was designed and constructed with this in mind. It included all demolition works on site, external hardstandings, drainage and service installations.

The new build lifeboat station houses a new all-weather Shannon-class lifeboat and an inshore D-class lifeboat

Ridge provided full quantity surveying services for the project from initial concept to completion. Initial cost advice was essential to establish the RNLI’s budget and appraisal from the scheme. Cost management, tender and contract services were also provided to successfully deliver the scheme within budget.

  • £1.7 million

Ridge prepared bespoke preliminaries to determine the sequencing and methodology for the works. Bills of Quantities were prepared on the Stage 4 BIM model and the works competitively tendered. During the construction period, additional civil engineering works were scoped and instructed based on an agreed cost.
