Burrell Foley Fischer LLP was appointed by St Modwen Properties Plc as heritage architects for the restoration of the West Pier in Brighton. A full architectural scheme for the restoration of the pier to its original design was prepared by the Practice, based upon a combination of surveys of the remaining structure and historic research. However a catastrophic storm in June 2004 brought restoration plans to a halt.
John Burrell’s association with the Pier goes back to his student days when he prepared measured drawings of the kiosks and the entire pier. These are now deposited with the Royal Commission for Historic Monuments.
