Brighton i360

Newsletter - Issue 5 - December 1st 2014 Welcome to the 5th project newsletter for the Brighton i360.

and an old sea wall that nobody knew existed!

A momentous year!

We have been busy off-site too. In France, the bull wheels were manufactured for the pod, allowing it to travel smoothly up the tower, whilst in Holland we finished rolling our tower cans. We have now started work on the metal rims the flanges shown in the picture below - that attach to the cans so they can be bolted together.

It’s hard to believe it is the end of

the year already. Since financial close this June, the site has been a hive of activity.

Our first spade struck the ground in July and over the following months we dismantled the on-site West Pier wreckage, built a new ‘beach boardwalk’ style access road and embarked on the huge challenge of rerouting the Victorian sewer and the nine electrical cables running beneath the site. This involved excavating rogue cables

The work above ground Of course about the building. Chairman,

the i360 is not just construction of the David Marks, our and Eleanor Harris,

our Chief Executive, have been busy building relationships with the community, local businesses, civic societies, residents groups and stakeholders. We have also expanded our team to include Ruth Chapman and Anna Prior, both based at the i360 site.
