A cafe at one of Guernsey’s most popular beaches is being turned into a two storey restaurant with a raised decking area at the rear and a decked walkway adjacent to the sea wall. The present building, which lies between the coast road and the sea wall, will be extended at the front and both sides with a roof terrace created on its first floor.
The architect designed project specified slate grey ecodek decking boards principally for its attractive modern appearance which fits exactly with the contemporary design of the whole project. Also critical was the ability for a decked area to withstand a high use commercial application in harsh weather conditions with minimal on-going maintenance.
ecodek composite decking is a fantastic alternative in this situation as there is no requirement for any sanding, sealing or painting thus creating the low maintenance product required. Installers have also been able to take the best characteristics of softwood and hardwood decking products i.e. easy to cut but remove unwanted features like rotting, warping and splintering.
The changes will provide the opportunity for alfresco seating with views of Vazon Bay, Guernsey’s largest beach, situated on the West Coast and noted for stunning sunsets. Unfortunately the sun does not always shine as our picture of the work in progress shows, but fingers crossed by October 2012 completion date customers will be able to take advantage of the autumn colours in a little bit of sunshine!
