Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel for gas

Project overview

Cleethorpes Pier, named ‘Pier of the Year’ in 2016, is an iconic Victorian landmark, first opening in 1873. In 2015, the pier was completely refurbished, retaining its traditional beauty with the addition of the latest mod cons and styling, including floor to ceiling windows on one side of the building to capitalise on the dramatic views.

As part of the refurbishment, gas works needed upgrading, switching from expensive bottled LPG to mains gas. Geberit Mapress 88.9mm Stainless Steel gas pipe was installed at high level under the pier structure, joining a meter adjacent to the promenade which now supplies gas to the new kitchen and ‘1873’ restaurant, located at the end of the pier. Specified and installed by the National Grid, this project was the first time the energy provider had used Mapress on a large scale.
