Shoreham Airport, which is now known as Brighton City Airport, was founded in 1910 and is the oldest airport in the UK, as well as being the oldest purpose build commercial airport in the world. The iconic Art Deco terminal building was designed by architect Stavers Tiltman and was opened to the public in 1936.
The terminal building is (now) grade II listed and has been used in many films and TV programmes including: The Da Vinci Code and Agatha Christie’s Poirot.
Following a competitive tendering exercise, Bramber were selected to undertake both internal and external alterations to create much needed additional commercial space within the terminal building.
Key successes of the project included:
- Protecting, retaining and re-using many of the existing listed fixtures and fittings.
- Ensuring our works did not disrupt the day to day running of this busy commercial airport.
- Providing high quality finishes that were required for a grade II listed building.
