Curtis Moore is delighted to have won the roofing and cladding contract with George Leslie Ltd on the redevelopment of Brodick Ferry Terminal in Arran.

The project aims to maintain and enhance lifeline ferry services between the island of Arran and mainland Scotland for the next 60 years.

Ferry operators – Caledonian Maritime Assets (CMAL) – together with Transport Scotland are investing £22.2million upgrading the harbour to include:

  • A new two-berth pier adjacent to the existing pier
  • An extension of the number of ferry services in the summer
  • A new terminal building and covered walkway
  • Increased marshalling areas and car parking
  • An additional bus stance

CMAL has said that most of the existing facility was constructed in the early 1970s and while upgrade and maintenance work has been carried out over the years, the infrastructure is now reaching the end of its serviceable life.

Andrew Devlin, Managing Director of Curtis Moore, said, “we are excited to be involved in such an important transport terminal connecting mainland Scotland to the popular island of Arran. The project will transform the current harbor and should add significant value to the local community.”

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. This project will bring significant economic benefit to the Island and we with George Leslie aim to work with the local community and businesses to ensure that these benefits are maximised.

Redevelopment work began earlier this year and the Curtis Moore team were deployed on site in June to complete the Kalzip standing seam roofing and the rainscreen cladding works.

You can keep up to date with the project, which is expected to be completed and reopen by August 2017, on the CMAL website here.
