The Boston Barrier is one of the biggest civil engineering projects the town has ever seen, with over £100 million invested to better protect Boston from tidal flooding.

The Boston Barrier project forms part of the Boston Combined Strategy, a 100 year strategic approach to flood risk management in the town of Boston. The strategy identified a multi-functional barrier as the best solution for addressing flood risk management and waterway objectives in Boston.

FIS were pleased to work with Bam Nuttall and Mott McDonald to produce a compliant design for the protection of the Tidal Barrier Control Building from the ingress of ground gases.
