bdp has won three years' worth of new-build, adaptation and conservation work costing £14.2 million at the famous Historic Dockyard in Chatham, Kent. The practice is to adapt three key scheduled Ancient Monuments - the Joiners Shop, the Fitted Rigging House, and No.1 Smithery, and will build new visitor facilities, a car park, and station buildings for an on-site railway planned for use by visitors. The Joiners Shop will be adapted for commercial use and is due for completion in October this year. The Fitted Rigging House will be used for museum and reception facilities with the upper floors converted for office use, and No. 1 Smithery - currently very dilapidated - will be re-roofed. bdp has also been asked to carry out backlog maintenance and refurbishment work on 30 other Ancient Monuments on the 32ha site.
