KBI launches major Flexipave project to create accessible pathways for new RSPB nature reserve in Skeffling

KBI UK are pleased to announce the start of our latest significant project: the installation of accessible Flexipave footpaths in Skeffling,as part of the managed realignment scheme.

Our installation of Flexipave has begun this week in Skeffling as part of the construction of a brand new nature reserve.

This innovative project, partly funded by the Environmental Agency, involves the construction of a new sea embankment further inland and the breaching of the old one. By allowing seawater to flow in, the goal of this project is to create new intertidal habitats that will support a diverse range of wildlife, including rare and endangered bird species.

Work has started this week installing over 2500m2 of Flexipave, as part of the managed realignment scheme.

The Humber estuary, a crucial wildlife conservation site, has experienced habitat loss and degradation due to new flood defences and rising sea levels. The broader project aims to address these challenges and enhance the ecological value of the area.

Before shots- Flexipave will provide accessible pathways to the new RSPB nature reserve.

In partnership with JN Bentley, a prominent construction company, we have been tasked with installing over 2500m2 of accessible Flexipave footpaths. These paths will lead to the new nature reserve managed by the RSPB and will be situated inside bird hides for visitors to enjoy.

This highly sustainable and environmentally friendly initiative will provide an excellent opportunity for the public to engage with and appreciate the local wildlife up close.

Flexipave has been selected for this major project that has been partly funded by the Environmental agency.

Flexipave was chosen as the material for this project due to its permeability and sustainability.

KBI is thrilled to be part of this transformative project and is looking forward to the positive impact it will have on the environment and the community.

Stay tuned for updates on the project and the final outcome!
