Challenge

Morecambe’s seafront is over 5 miles (8 km) in length and since 1990 the original sea walls and promenades had been battered and breached by severe storms.

The landward side, composed of hotels, guest houses, private dwellings, shops and seaside entertainment, had been damaged by floods, and new defences were due to be constructed.

As part of the acclaimed 'Tern Project', a series of artworks were commissioned by Lancaster City Councilfor the seafront area, including cast birdlife sculptures to decorate a seafront post and rail system.

Solution

Working alongside sculptor, David Kemp, ASF cast sculptures of cormorants, mallards, puffins and magpies as stylish and highly decorative finials.

Outcome

The bird sculptures improve and enhance the Morecambe Bay environment by making the link between a civil engineering programme, the public realm and the birdlife of the local area.
