Hasting’s Pier is an iconic landmark, which, until recently, remained derelict for many years and withstood a major fire in 2010. Following a £14m renovation, the newly opened pier now boasts a stylish makeover, maintaining its rich history while bringing its looks and functionality into the 21st century.
A charity project, the lion’s share of money has been raised through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), with the redevelopment boosting local jobs and visitors to the seaside town.
Renovation works have included repairing the pier’s Grade II listed substructure, refurbishing its only standing pavilion, the construction of a new visitor centre and a full service restaurant in the one remaining original building. It is also licensed for weddings with function rooms for private events, receptions and meetings and includes a roof terrace café, ‘The Deck’.
All gas pipework is Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel, offering a versatile solution that is quick to install. The off-pier waste system utilises Geberit HDPE, made from polyethylene; environmentally friendly and completely recyclable, with no toxic emissions released during its processing or in case of fire, fitting in with one of the redevelopment’s key remits of being sustainable.
