Prestigious Marina Development on the Horizon

Granite Products have been supplying material for the Horizon development in Jersey for the past four years. The contract is now nearing it's end with the development due to fully open this September.

Located by the vibrant St. Helier waterfront, the Horizon scheme will offer 280 luxury apartments, with a selection of units.  These will be allocated across three separate buildings, designed by architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) to make best use of the marina’s natural light and scenic views. The development will also introduce new public spaces and retail facilities, creating a contemporary destination for the wider community.

Richard Diegan, Technical Sales Manager at Granite Products, said: “We supplied material for concrete blocks and piling operations, including GGBS mixes that offer a more sustainable alternative to traditional Portland Cement. Once delivered to the site, three cranes were used to efficiently distribute the material across the separate structures.”

The contract with French construction firm, Legendre, was to supply 22,000m3 of concrete which was delivered from Granite Product's state-of-the-art, high-output concrete plant at La Gigoulande Quarry.

Commissioned in 2018, the plant allows Granite Products to supply important construction developments across the Island, providing a fast and reliable service. This investment has built on the company’s record of supporting the Island’s growth, which over the years years has included a control tower for Jersey airport, and a bunker slab for La Collette Energy from Waste facility.

“The Horizon development marks another high-profile, long-term supply enabled by Granite Products,” says Richard. “It’s been fantastic working together with Legendre on this project for the last four years, helping to build a development that will provide modern accommodation and retail options for the Island.”
