September will see the start of a project to refurbish the façade of the brick building at Endeavour Quay, Premier Marina’s specialist boatyard and the site of the famous Camper & Nicholson’s Shipyard situated by Gosport Marina. The building is an icon of the Gosport waterfront and part of the heritage of the town, and as such has a locally listed status.
As part of its commitment to invest in its sites, Premier Marinas will undertake an entirely sympathetic refurbishment, bringing the building back to its original appearance when it was built in 1911. Works will include replacement of cracked sills and lintels, replacement of the wooden window frames, re-pointing of the brickwork and some necessary remedial works.
The entire building will be scaffolded and clad in a protective sheeting to facilitate the cleaning of the building and keep dust to a minimum. Safe access will be maintained to all of the businesses on site, who will remain open as usual throughout the works. The boat lifting operation will also continue during this period as well. The project is expected to take approximately 8 weeks to complete, with the aim of revealing a refreshed and renewed building in the early part of November.
