Coastal Infrastructure Resilience Planning

JBP  have just finished our first coastal risk assessment, supporting EvoCoast ( in Western Australia.  The project considered different approaches for coastal risk assessments, comparing approaches from the USACE Coastal Engineering Manual, the UK Condition Assessment Manual (CAM), and theh JBP AssetCoast system (  

We found each method to have specific advantages that could be combined to offer an advanced approach for Australian coastal defences.  This integration allowed us to consider not only present-day risks but also project these into the future through deterioration estimates to allow future planning.  

The study:

  • Calculated present day condition and risks across seawalls, revetments and groynes.

  • Projection of risks through future time epochs.

  • Identification of ideal upgrade timeframes to support infrastructure investment planning.
