Construction underway at exclusive waters-edge Jersey development
Construction work at Horizon, the exclusive residential waterside development, has begun in St Helier, Jersey. Once completed, the scheme will deliver a high-end collection of 280 one, two and three bedroom waterside apartments and penthouses, alongside a new 20,000 ft² retail and restaurant quarter at the water’s edge.
Continuing our longstanding relationship working with the Government of Jersey’s property development arm – Jersey Development Company (JDC) on the Esplanade Quarter site, this latest project sees us work with JDC once more, alongside their joint-venture partner, Groupe Legendre.
Comprising three 9-storey buildings above a two-storey development-wide basement, the project is located on an area of reclaimed land with a large tidal range and below-ground water. Our specialists provided design consultancy services for the challenging basement-level, covering contamination, hydrogeology and geotechnical aspects, in addition to the structure and highways on the site.
Waterman’s structures and civils teams provided detailed design input to set the site’s geometry and spatial arrangement, whilst our building services team are providing client-side compliance monitoring for the MEP services and lift installation. With triangular buildings sitting in a fan arrangement to maximise sea views from apartments, the residential blocks required careful structural design at first floor and podium level, whilst giving consideration for the building transfers at ground floor level and accommodating the maximum number of parking bays.
Mark Terndrup, Director of Waterman Building Services, said; “This scheme will create an exciting new destination for St Helier and we are proud to be part of the team delivering the project. We believe the expertise and experience we have gained working with JDC in Jersey for almost a decade will help make the project a success.”
The project completion is forecast for 2022, with more information available here.
