HOP acted as NEC Project Manager for the British Airways i360, the world’s first vertical cable car. We provided design and project management services for the grade 1 listed arch refurbishment and highway elements, as well as other licencing support and various temporary works aspects. This included a temporary landing stage to support a 500 tonne crane which offloaded the 50-100 tonne tower sections directly to site from barge.
HOP are very proud to have been part of the design and construction team for the British Airways i360. We are delighted that it has received the following prestigious awards:
RIBA South East England Award 2017
Constructing Excellence Awards 2017 – Award for Innovation
RICS Awards, South East – Project of the Year 2017
ICE SE England – Engineering Excellence Awards 2017 – Award for Innovation
Congratulations must be given to all those involved in the development of this iconic landmark on Brighton’s seafront.
