Winter Garden Eastbourne- January 2018

As part of the framework for the re-development of Devonshire Park (Eastbourne) we are working on the Victorian Floral Hall design of the listed Winter Garden (built 1872). The western apse requires replacement – due to degradation – and will be re-build as a steel structure. Key aspects for this include making sure the stability of the fragile cast-iron structure is guaranteed throughout the construction period, and devising practical connections between the new structure and the non-weldable cast-iron structure.
