McCarthy & Stone Weymouth Retirement Living / Care £12.00 million Graham Garner & Partners

The Harbour Lights project is an imaginative 3-storey Retirement Living development on the seafront at Weymouth in Dorset. McCarthy & Stone’s careful consideration of the façades facing Weymouth Marina preserved the distinctive character of the local area.

Sigmat helped the main contractor McCarthy & Stone to design and build a new superstructure to house retired over 60's in a stunning location which overlooks Weymouth Marina. We installed a hot rolled steel podium to form under-croft parking as well as communal areas. This dovetailed perfectly with the 3-storey Sigmat light gauge steel frame and the Sigmat Mansard roof.

Since this was our first experience of building with light gauge steel the speed of construction took us all by surprise. This is a 'great piece of kit' that went up well, with the Sigmat team working in partnership with other trades on site. I'd be more than happy to construct in this way in the future.
