New bigging bay Offshore statue
The five-meter high bronze statue “The Couple” is an eye-catcher of the government-funded refurbishment of the English coastal town of Newbiggin by the Sea. The aim of the £ 10 million project on the coast is to breathe new life into the town. A large part of the beach has been washed away over the years. If the coastline continues to decline, sea defenses could collapse, creating a risk for buildings along the coast.
To protect the newly sprayed beach and protect the coast from erosion, a new breakwater was installed 300 meters off the coast. Part of this new breakwater was the placement of a prefab platform with the two bronze statues. Geovisie took care of all dimensioning work for the foundations, construction, installation and installation.
