Day and Night Opening Event

Sealife Brighton ‘Day & Night’

It was our great pleasure to attend the official preview of the new Day & Night ocean display at Sealife Brighton. The opening of this new attraction marks the end of a £4 million full site restoration scheme that has been ongoing since 2012.

The display features a huge tunnel for visitors to walk through, surrounded by sea creatures swimming all around them. Designed to give a 24-hour experience of the ocean, the journey starts in a daylight environment, before transitioning into a night time setting further along the tunnel.

The massive ocean tank contains 700,000 litres of water, which was transported to the aquarium from Hove Lagoon. A large viewing window is also available for visitors to get a framed view of the underwater seascape, which is now home to sea life ranging from Nurse Sharks and turtles to tropical fish, such as Sweetlips, Butterfly Fish and Clown Triggerfish.

The new ‘Day & Night’ display was officially opened to the public at the end of May and the display is the first of its kind in the UK.

Gyoury Self is proud to have provided structural engineering for all aspects of the extensive and complex restoration and refurbishment scheme at Sealife Brighton, which was programmed to be undertaken in four key phases spanning the past seven years.

Congratulations to Max Leviston and the Sealife Brighton team for successfully managing the delivery of this ambitious refurbishment which has transformed the world’s oldest operating aquarium into a state-of-the-art seafront attraction. It has been a pleasure to work with you!

Coleford Lidl, Gloucestershire

Our latest retail project will provide a new centrally-located Lidl supermarket on Lord’s Hill in Coleford, Gloucestershire.

As the main contractor, Soldi Construction has appointed Goury Self to provide full structural and civil engineering design services alongside project architects Roberts Limbrick. Soldi has already successfully delivered a number of Lidl stores across the South of England since 2014.

3D Revit Model of new LidlThe new Coleford Lidl will have a 1,129 square metre sales area, and feature facilities including a bakery and customer toilets.
A new car park will be incorporated into the site, providing 76 spaces including five disabled and eight parent/toddler spaces, and parking for bicycles.

The branch represents a multi-million pound investment in the market town and will provide employment for a staff of 40 people, made up of 15 full-time and 25 part-time employees.

During public consultation, Coleford residents responded favourably to the prospect of a centrally-located budget supermarket and the planning application gained the full approval of councillors on the Forest of Dean District Council planning committee.

Residential Development, Newhaven

We are currently providing full structural and civil engineering services for a new residential development in Newhaven, West Sussex.

Commissioned by Denton Road Developments, the new build scheme will deliver ten new homes on a deeply-sloping site.

The development takes the form of eight 3-storey, semi-detached houses arranged in a terrace fronting onto Denton Road, plus an additional pair of semi-detached houses on the upper part of the site, with access off of Denton Drive.

Retaining wall constructionThe buildings all have timber framed superstructures which are being designed and constructed offsite by specialist supplier OFP Timberframes.

Due to the steeply sloping nature of the site, substantial retaining walls will be required and the Anderton Stepoc concrete shuttering system is being used as it offers a cost-effective high performance solution in these circumstances.

The Denton Road development is one of two residential projects we are currently working on for this client alongside Crowther Associates Architects and builders JPS Contractors. For details of the Clarence Road residential development, click here.

The project is currently under construction on site and is due for completion later this year.

This is the second residential development we have engineered in the Denton area in recent years. To view the Tide Mills residential development at Denton Corner, click here.

Industrial Acoustic Enclosure, Sussex

Gyoury Self is providing full structural and civil engineering services for a new open sided acoustic enclosure at the Austin Divall steel fabrication site in Ford, West Sussex.

We have produced detailed designs for the new steel framed enclosure which Austin Divall has fabricated on site at the Rudfield Industrial Estate. The enclosure adjoins their existing steel fabrication workshop and is designed to reduce the noise breakout to the adjacent residential properties.

This is the second round of works we have delivered for Austin Divall, as the site underwent significant redevelopment in 2009. On that occasion we provided structural and civil engineering designs for an extension to the original workshops which effectively doubled the size of the company’s steel working operations. The original expansion works included new office and painting facilities.

The current works are being undertaken alongside ECE Architecture and Pilbeam Construction and construction is due for completion in the coming months.

Steel frame

Brighton Square, Phase 3

Works to create 25,000 square feet of new build residential and retail property on the area of the car park entrance at Brighton Square are now in full swing.

Construction planThe works form part of a major refurbishment programme to modernise this well-appointed area within the Brighton Lanes in East Sussex.

The current round of works will create a new mixed use development consisting of four residential units and two new shops in the eastern corner of Brighton Square.

The hot-rolled steel frame for main build has now been erected and the lower level floor levels have been cast.

Installation of the pre-fabricated metal wall panels and concrete floor decking is well underway.

The collection of 1-2 storey flats will be formed using a cold-rolled load-bearing structural Framing System (SFS) with an in-situ concrete floor system.

Pre-fabricated wall panelsGyoury Self also provided structural engineering services for the recent redevelopment of business units at the ‘North Block’ of Brighton Square which are being transformed into the Coppa Club bar and restaurant. Planning is currently being sought for the creation of an outdoor seating area.

The phased redevelopment scheme was commissioned by Centurion Group – the owners of Brighton Square – and we have undertaken the work as part of a design team which includes project architects Morgan Carn Partnership.

The current round of works is due for completion later this year.
