Urban high wire attraction Altitude44 has been shortlisted in the Greater Lincolnshire Construction and Property Awards 2020 after being jointly nominated by BSP Consulting and architects and sports business consultants LK2.
The Skegness attraction has been named as a finalist in the construction projects under £5m category.
In October, Altitude44 won the Non-Residential Project of the Year Award at the fbe East Midlands Awards 2019.
BSP business development director Jef Todd said: “This is more fantastic news for an attraction which aims to boost the economy of Skegness, improve the health and fitness levels of the residents of the town, and encourage more visitors to the resort, especially out of season.”
Billed as the tallest urban high wire attraction in the UK, Altitude44 was developed by Magna Vitae, with KristallTurn the main contractor. It features four giant-sized platforms within which sit 44 fun obstacles of all different shapes and sizes, and which have a distinctly seaside theme. A new café has also been created, as part of the attraction, which has been created near the seafront at Skegness, on Grand Parade.
The café at Altitude44 opened to the public in July 2019, with the high-wire attraction opening in early August 2019.
BSP was the engineer for the project.
The Greater Lincolnshire Construction and Property Awards 2020 winners will be announced at a ceremony at DoubleTree by Hilton Lincoln on 6th February 2020.
