About the project
The RNLI’s new Selsey lifeboat station was completed during 2017 and received a brand new Shannon-class all-weather lifeboat along with its launch and recovery system.
The new building replaces the offshore slipway station that was carefully demolished following completion of the new on-shore facility. Selsey is another station based on the ‘Catalogue’ range designed with Revit software by Studio Four in partnership with the RNLI. It houses a D-class inshore lifeboat, as well as the Shannon-class, and both are launched through the new flood defence gates in the sea wall and across the shingle beach.
The scheme sits comfortably in a generally residential area and incorporates high quality local brickwork flint and Accoya timber windows and external doors. Also included are a number of renewable energy features, in common with other modern stations, including solar PV panels and a ground source heat pump linked to the underfloor heating.
