Fladgate LLP is delighted that Brighton’s British Airways i360, the world’s tallest moving observation tower, has opened for business. The 168m tower conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, the creators of the London Eye, allows visitors to enjoy breath-taking views of Brighton, the South Downs and the Sussex coastline.
Fladgate advised on the construction documentation for the tower which is located on Brighton’s seafront and is the cornerstone for the regeneration of the seafront by the former West Pier. Contractors from Holland, France, England and Australia were involved in the project.
Fladgate has an established practice acting for clients in the public attraction and museum sectors. In addition, some of the firm’s earliest instructions relate to this sector, including acting as solicitors to the Commissioners for the Great Exhibition of 1851, and an instruction from Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, in 1862, to help set up the Smithsonian Institution.
