Portsmouth Ferry Terminal





D5 Architects



Scope of Project:

This dazzling new passenger terminal was opened by Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP in 2012 and is designed to provide cruise and ferry passengers with an enhanced experience on arrival and departure whilst maintaining the highest environmental standards.

TAC Projects fitted a natural stone rainscreen that provided a counterpoint to the conventional aluminium cladding.

Cladding contractors are well aware of the problems involved with fitting a system that allows no tolerance for a perfect finish to a shell of masonry and steel where measurements can be somewhat arbitrary. 

It is a tribute to project manager Tim Bench and designer Steve Reed and the site team that the various angles, features and abutments fitted perfectly, and the project was completed on time.
