Aliva UK’s £1m+ contract to provide stunning finishes for a major residential and leisure development at Europe’s largest marina is complete – with a trio of products helping to change the skyline. The development in Brighton includes 175 seafront apartments, car parking, commercial spaces and a new lifeboat base.
Aliva has supplied more than 6,000sqm of ceramic cladding – a finish tough enough to withstand Brighton seafront’s demanding weather conditions. The cladding for the first phase of the development, which includes both residential and commercial spaces, features three colours: off white, light and mid grey – shades sympathetic to the seascape.
Cladding for the lifeboat base has also been supplied by Aliva using its High Pressure Laminate (HPL) system in an off white, matching the ceramic cladding as closely as possible. In addition, Aliva provided insulated render for entrances, internal sides on parapet walls of balconies, on retaining walls and in between shop fronts. The complete order – c. 1,500sqm of insulated render in various thicknesses – was supplied as a standard colour and painted in Aliva’s Superquartz paint in maritime tones of turquoise, light blue, dark blue and light grey.
Aliva worked alongside Midgard on the design of the project. Mamta Kansara, Design Director at Midgard Ltd said: “Aliva UK designed a high performance, durable and cost-efficient façade, delivering on time and on budget. With phase 1 successfully complete it’s a delight to see their trio of systems transforming this coastal location.”
