Final Countdown to Cruise Terminal Completion.

It’s full steam ahead as work continues apace on the flagship cruise terminal being built by Brymor Construction for Associated British Ports (ABP) in Southampton.

The £27m complex – named Horizon Cruise Terminal – is due to be completed in July.

Its iconic ‘wave’ design roof is already a landmark on Southampton’s skyline at Western Docks as the final works are carried.

Extending over 11,695 sq m, the two-floor terminal will take the passenger experience to another level with a modern design, curtain wall glazing, lounges, VIP suite and ship to shore air bridge.

Stephen Morton, Brymor Chairman, said: “Horizon Cruise Terminal already looks stunning and work isn’t even finished yet.

“With a July completion date, all at Brymor Construction are fully focused on the final phase of delivery for this fantastic development.”

Horizon Cruise Terminal’s futuristic design includes curved glulam beams with exposed soffits and an open plan arrivals hall to give a spectacular welcome to passengers. Its sustainable features include roof-mounted solar power.

The terminal is designed to allow more than 6,000 passengers to embark and disembark in a single day.

Brymor is providing design and construction services. The development has created jobs and boosted the local supply chain.

A ‘statement’ building, it will also play a major role in keeping Southampton at the top of the premier league of cruise ports in the UK and Europe.

Brymor’s construction of the Horizon Cruise Terminal comes after it carried out other terminal refurbishments at Southampton.

They have included the City Cruise, Mayflower, QE2 and the Fruit Shed terminals.
