The West Pier Trust is pleased to announce that the collapsed remains of the Concert Hall will be removed during the next two weeks.
The work will be carried out by specialist demolition and salvage contractor Dorton Demolition and project managed by the Trust’s consultant engineers, Hemsley Orrell Partnership. The work will be done to the highest professional standards with health and safety a priority.
The work is a requirement of the i360 planning permission and has the full support of Brighton & Hove City Council and English Heritage.
The Trust is taking advantage of good spring tides to clear the area of a potentially hazardous structure before the start of warmer weather and the holiday season.
Historically important items will be salvaged for safe keeping by the Trust and the iconic Pavilion island will not be touched.
