Standing tall at 170 metres above sea level, the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth is a spectacular example of engineering and architectural expertise that marks the gateway to the city and harbour. As specialist contractors on the project, Lakesmere was appointed to design and install the 3-tiered bolted glass observation decks and the glazed framework package for the visitor centre and scenic lift enclosures. Owing to the challenging marine conditions of the harbour, Lakesmere also played a significant role in the specification process, advising on appropriate grades of stainless steel and other various metal surface treatments.
