Kings Road Arches Reconstruction – Phase 1
Brighton & Hove City Council
Demolition and reconstruction of 26 Victorian brick arches on Hove seafront. Whilst the new structure is an RC portal frame on piled foundations, great care has been taken to replicate faithfully the Victorian brickwork façade, and the project has been recognised for its innovation and sustainability by the Institution of Civil Engineers in its regional awards ceremony.
New cast iron railings and refurbishment of the existing shelter were also included in the scope, as was 1000m2 of block paving and a further 1000m2 of tarmac surfacing.
The project won the 2015 Sussex Heritage Award for a commercial development.
