The Old Tenby Lifeboat Station

Contractor

Horan Construction Ltd


Overview

Natralight were awarded the contract for the design, manufacture and installation of contemporary style low profile glass rooflights with electrically operated hinged opening glazed vents and curved glass feature balustrade to the converted slipway sun terrace.

The product construction was met to fulfil many design criteria to contend with its exposed and occasionally harsh marine environment and also to satisfy the Welsh Built Heritage.

The installation itself was somewhat challenging in view of limited access to the site from offloading point however careful prior planning resulted in a safe and successful fitting coupled with a tight programme.

The project was shown on Channel 4's Grand Designs.
