Grenadier, the local developer of Sideshore at Exmouth, has today unveiled a new ramp to provide visitors to the waterfront with immediate and easy access from the walkway above to the beach. The ramp, which is made from a mixture of sustainable FSC-certified timber, concrete, and steel, has been installed in front of the Watersports centre.

Simon Findel-Hawkins, Sideshore Manager, commented: “Currently there are various stairways from the walkway onto the beach, but the new ramp will enable visitors to access the beach step-free, including those carrying sports equipment or those with limited ability.

We look forward to welcoming more visitors over the summer and hope the new ramp will be beneficial for those who may struggle with the steps.”

Grenadier, who pride themselves on being a sustainable developer, sourced Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified timber to line the edges of the ramp and the handrails, which are supported by concrete panels and a steel frame to provide a robust structure.

Every detail has been considered to ensure the overall Sideshore development is as self-sufficient and environmentally friendly as possible. Sideshore reached an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of ‘A’ which is ground-breaking for a commercial building of this type.

Committed to an environmentally conscious approach to development, Grenadier wants to push the boundaries of sustainability to deliver a project which not only benefits the community but also the wider environment.
