Concrete For Prestigious Waterfront Development

Granite Products, Jersey has commenced supply of ready-mixed concrete to the prestigious Horizon development on the waterfront in St. Helier, as part of a contract with main contractor, Legendre to supply 22,000 metres cubed over three years.

So far 5,200 m3 of concrete has been taken by sub-contractor and foundation specialist, NSP Foundations Ltd for piling works at the site, which sits on the waterfront adjacent to the Radisson Blu hotel.  The Horizon development includes 280 luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses, a brand-new restaurant and retail quarter at the water’s edge, and associated basement parking.

“This is a significant contract for Granite Products, secured following recent investment in a state-of-the-art, high-output concrete plant at La Gigoulande quarry site,” says Simon Clowes, General Manager of Granite Products. “Our new plant enables us to provide a fast, reliable service and to win long-term supply contracts with important construction projects on the island, such as the Horizon development.”
