Case Study: Brighton Marina, Brighton
Brighton Marina brings a new meaning to waterside living, with 11 stunning towers creating a toal of 853 superb new homes in an outstanding south coast location. One of the most exciting developments in the history of this vibrant city, it presents a rare opportunity to experience marina life amidst all the advantages of Brightons rich heritage. The first phase of 175 apartments spread over F1 and F2 is now complete.
Having built up a good working relationship with Midgard Limited over the last few years we asked what they thought we could offer for their new project at Brighton Marina. Being on the coast with salt spray and having weather conditions of harsh contrasts a product was needed that would give an attractive and modern look while being able to withstand the conditions. Therefore a viable alternative to traditional timber decking was required.
With full height glazing and spacious balconies offering the most spectacular marine views stretching far into the distance, the decision was made for our our AB Composite Decking in colour Chocolate to be installed on our heavy duty plastic battens. All fixings were upgraded to A4 marine grade stainless steel which has now become standard for all jobs.
A lively, cosmopolitan cocktail of boating enthusiasts, bars, restaurants, entertainment and chic shops best sums up this marina, perfect for yachts and motorboats alike, family-friendly and fun. We were asked to supply materials for the amphitheatre at Brighton, the UKs largest marina, and our AB Solid Decking in colour Chocolate was chosen, again using A4 Marine fixings with bullnose boards for the seating areas. Below is a short testimonial given by the project manager on site regarding the overall experience with AB Building Products;
“AB Building Products have again provided an excellent service from their extensive knowledge to advising us in our best options. With restrictive storage space on site it was very important for us to recieve large quantities of the goods at very short notice, AB Building Products were acutely aware of this and met our demands without a hitch.”
