Brighton i360 Newsletter - Issue 4 - November 3rd 2014 Welcome to the 4th project newsletter for the Brighton i360. It’s been another busy month with work continuing on the sewer and services diversion, design meetings to finalise the pod and more opportunities to meet our local community.

The work underground As we clear more ground, the team have had to deal with another batch of unforeseen problems: rogue cables lying across the sea wall, an area we had to excavate to make way for the new sewer. We also found another cable that was threatening to complicate our new concrete cable tunnel. Eventually each rogue cable was tracked back to its source (in one case we just found

another loose end!) and removed by UK Power Networks. Now that the site is clear, we have removed the sea wall and the sewer tunnel is taking shape. We have also completed work on the concrete tunnel and the new cables have been fed through. During the first week of November UKPN will join the cables to the existing network.

The work above ground Alongside our successes underground, we also gave several talks across the city, mounted our time lapse cameras on top of the Hilton and hosted our second community meeting, which you can read more about on the back page.

Supporting the Living Wage Brighton i360 was also one of the first major tourism attractions to sign up to the Living Wage Campaign in Brighton & Hove. It means that we commit to paying its staff well over the minimum wage. Eleanor Harris, CEO of Brighton i360, explains why she backs the decision:

“We want to attract and retain great people who are able to deliver outstanding customer service. “We believe that paying decent wages will have a direct and positive impact on our bottom line.”

Join our team! We are looking for a new member of the team! We have an exciting opportunity for a new and dynamic Sales Manager. The role involves identifying potential clients and market opportunities for the i360 as well as developing a package of commercial benefits and / or sponsorship rights for partners. Full details are on our website.
