The Historic Dockyard Chatham

A-Hoy matey – is that secondary glazing we see?

Client:  Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust

The Historic Dockyard at Chatham in Kent, was one of the Royal Navy’s main facilities for four hundred years until it closed in 1984. Ownership was then transferred to the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust to re purpose the site, opening it up as a visitor attraction, as well as including places where people can live and learn. The core of the 80 acre site, houses over 100 buildings and structures dating from the Georgian and Victorian periods, to present day new builds. Many of which are Listed and required a great deal of upgrading to bring them up to 21st century working and living standards. Selectaglaze has worked with the Historic Dockyard Chatham for a number of years, having first started work at the maritime museum on the Grade II Listed Joiner’s Shop back in 2008. Since then, Selectaglaze has returned to the site on many occasions and fitted a vast range of units across much of the estate to help make the buildings more thermally efficient and also provide noise insulation. Overall, facilities manager Nigel Howard who has seen much of the redevelopment of the Historic Dockyard Chatham has been thoroughly impressed with the consistent quality of Selectaglaze systems throughout the years.
