As you may know, work has started on the £250m development of Brighton Marina, East Sussex. The aim and final outcome of this expensive construction will result in 854 new homes for members of the public to purchase, a car park that will hold up to 350 spaces upon completion and seven retail units along the ground floor. This construction will also include a new RNLI lifeboat station that will be located in a purpose built floating yacht club.

The wait for this marvelous construction has been quite lengthy due to a number of reasons, however, the people of Brighton and Hove are happy to welcome the development and construction of this new building.

The construction of the residential units within 11 buildings, one of which will be an outstanding 40 storey tower, will improve the areas local economy by providing a multiplicity of jobs in the area during and after the construction process.

As for the problems of this construction in Brighton & Hove, there have been unforeseen piling issues. Moreover there is a fear that local businesses will be hit by the construction process, not to mention those 1600 boats lying in the adjacent Brighton marina. As a result, the main contractor has coordinated with the local authorities and implemented well-controlled noise measures which has to an extent alleviated the disturbances caused by the construction processes, namely the substructure groundwork elements. Having only one entrance to the site for the whole construction process has been a challenging factor, especially when considering the scope of the buildings at hand.
