The Sands, Scarborough

Changing the shape of the Scarborough Coastline

The Sands, Scarborough: Case Study Summary

Client Location Sector Main Contractor
Benchmark Leisure Ltd Scarborough Residential Completed - 2016

The Sands development has become a new landmark on the Scarborough coastline. Its imaginative curved frame and modern detailing has made it a symbol of 21st century regeneration within one of the UK's best-loved seaside resorts.

The Sands is a mixed use development consisting of luxury apartments above ground level commercial units, with private parking to the rear. It contains 96 one and two bedroom apartments, four penthouses, a gym and communal areas.

Sigmat was able to deliver the bespoke light gauge frames which support the eye-catching curved design. We also carried out manufacture and installation of the frames to tight deadlines and completed on time.

The development is viewed as an outstanding success by all stakeholders and The Sands has made a substantial contribution to the 55 acre leisure and residential development taking place at Scarborough’s North Bay.

We were impressed by the professionalism of Sigmat throughout the project and their proactive approach whilst working with the design team. They responded to the challenging curves in the design and the bespoke frame manufacture and installation went without a hitch.
