Brighton i360 to start piling works this week

Marks Barfield's design for Brighton's dramatic viewing platform, is to be fulfilled in time for the 2012 Olympics according to an interview with local newspaper, The Argus. Piling works are set to commence this week, just in time before the planning application is to expire on 25 October. While the majority of the structure's 150 m pillar had already been constructed off-site, ready to be assembled on-site, the project was awaiting additional funding to commence the final build. Geoff Lockwood, deputy chairman of the West Pier Trust, told the Argus that planning permission will now not expire as the work has commenced on site. David Marks however said that this is just preparatory work and stated: “There is not yet a detailed timetable for the project but the intention is to have the i360 open in time for the London Olympics.” It is believed significant funding is still necessary to allow the build to complete.
