Property firm St Modwen Developments has, it says, received a 'hell of a lot of interest' from architects and engineers bidding to restore Brighton's dilapidated West Pier. The programme of work, advertised in the Official Journal of the European Communities, involves conducting detailed hydrographic and structural engineering surveys to ascertain the condition of the pier, but the property developers will insist on architectural involvement in the restoration programme. 'In appearance, it will be identical to how it was in the 1920s, which is considered to be the pier's commercial peak, ' said St Modwen director Nick Doyle. 'So there will be architectural involvement in the restoration of the pier.' Doyle said he would draw up a shortlist of candidates within a few weeks.
