Curtis Moore is delighted to report that the Brodick Ferry Terminal project is complete and open to the public!
On Thursday 12th April, Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Constitution, Derek Mackay, officially opened the new terminal building following the £30 million infrastructure upgrade project, which has transformed the harbour area.
Curtis Moore worked together with main contractor George Leslie Ltd on the project with redevelopment work commencing in 2016 and our team were deployed on site in June that year to complete the Kalzip standing seam roofing and the rain-screen cladding works.
The Minister was joined on the Isle of Arran by Kevin Hobbs, chief executive at Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), which led delivery of the project.
The project has created a flagship harbour for the Isle of Arran, one of Scotland’s most popular visitor destinations, and provides 21st century facilities that will boost the local economy and support the thriving island tourist industry.
Andrew Devlin, Managing Director of Curtis Moore, said, “we are thrilled to have worked on such an important transport terminal connecting mainland Scotland to the popular island of Arran. The new terminal will transform the current harbour and should add significant value to the local community.”
A firm commitment to sustainability throughout design and construction has led to a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating, an exceptional carbon performance and the top score from the Considerate Constructors Scheme, which the Curtis Moore team are especially pleased about.
Designed by Norr Architects, the new pier will allow a wider range of vessels to berth and the new terminal building will improve the passenger experience. The building has photovoltaic roof tiles to generate electricity for the building, a biomass heating system fuelled by locally sourced wood chips. It also features a natural air ventilation system, on-site segregated bicycle routes and storage, and electric vehicle charging points in the parking area.
