Project details

Conservation and adaptation of Georgian dockyard including 30 key scheduled Ancient Monuments.

Chatham Historic Dockyard is the most complete Georgian dockyard in the world and a site of international maritime significance. The dockyard covers 80 acres (32 ha) and encompasses over 100 buildings and structures, 50 of which are Scheduled Ancient Monuments.

BDP’s planning framework created an infrastructure to support urban regeneration, develop the visitor experience and identified potential new leisure, residential and commercial uses for all buildings to secure their long term viability and contribution to the overall atmosphere of this working dockyard.

Brief

  • the development of a masterplan to guide the future development of this historic dockyard
  • the repair and creative adaptation of 30 of the dockyard’s most important Scheduled Ancient Monuments

Results

  • the project has proved a catalyst and model for further urban regeneration, creating a sustainable environmental, economic, and social community within the dockyard and along the Medway
  • resulting from the success of the programme we are currently considering further proposals for a number of buildings
