The newly opened Brodick Ferry Terminal is the largest infrastructure investment to be undertaken by Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL), which was delivered alongside funding assistance from Transport Scotland, SPT, North Ayrshire Council and the Coastal Communities Fund.
On Thursday 12th April 2018, Derek Mackay, Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Constitution unveiled the plaque to mark the new ferry terminal officially ‘open for business’. Facilities at the new terminal include:
- 110m two-berth pier, which can accommodate other commercial vessels (including cruise liners)
- a modern, 1,328m2 2-storey terminal building, with capacity for 400 passengers
- 120-seater departure lounge
- an airport-style gangway
- increased traffic marshalling area, providing more space for passenger vehicles and HGVs
- parking spaces for 65 cars, and
- drop-off and pick-up points for taxis
Arthur McKay successfully delivered the building services fit-out of the new terminal building, with a firm commitment to sustainability. This included a large Solar PV array to the roof to generate electricity and a biomass heating system which is fuelled by locally sourced wood chips. Other energy savings measures included high-efficiency lighting, heat recovery and natural ventilation which, combined with energy from renewable sources, led to a reduction of over 30% in CO2 emissions.
Gordon Ferguson, Project Manager, from Arthur McKay commented: “It was a real pleasure to work on such an important infrastructure project. CMAL has delivered a state-of-the-art ferry terminal to improve the passenger experience and we have delivered a quality installation to match their expectations.”
