Port of Sheerness

ACA has provided specialist conservation and engineering advice to the Port on numerous listed structures including the Store Mast House, Lower Camber Basin (including oldest cast iron lock gates in the country still in situ), the Sheerness Lines (2nd World War defences) and Buildings 84 and 86.

The Boat Store is a unique building, and is the earliest surviving multi-storey iron-framed building in the world. The Boat Store was the first structure to depend for its stability entirely on its portal framing. The building was designed by Colonel G T Greene, Director of Engineering and Architectural Works, Admiralty and constructed in 1858-60. It is Grade 1 listed.

ACA provided specialist advice to allow the building to be preserved and examine suitability for future uses.
