RED Secure Isle of Man Ferry Terminal

In what promises to be a summer of 'Staycations' for us here in the UK, we are delighted to have been awarded the glazing contract for the new Isle of Man Ferry Terminal project. Working with our friends at John Sisk & Son, this high-profile project is part of a £5 billion pound waterfront regeneration project designed to transform the Princes Dock area in Liverpool. The cutting edge design will see us utilise a combination of Technal MXm Curtain Walling and Pilkington PlanarTM structurally glazed rooflights.

Celebrating Manx Culture Through Design…

The striking design has been developed to celebrate some of the island’s unique features. The base will be clad in bright zinc, a material originally mined from the Great Laxey Mine. The roof is punctuated by large red circular lights with a glazing pattern that refers to the Isle of Man triskelion.

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer MHK said:

“The proposed terminal has been designed to combine a high standard of civil engineering with a high quality building.

‘Passengers’ needs have been at the forefront of the design process, with comfortable modern facilities housed in a building which will serve generations of travellers well for many years to come.”
