The Shipwrights of Chatham
This regenerative project celebrates Chatham’s rich dockyard cultural heritage and positions its re-establishment of water based trades. These ethical and sustainable activities can recapture the intergenerational pride of Chatham’s former glories. Tertiary employment will be offered through the services that support the newly created engaging public spaces. Whilst, the regeneration of shipwright skills and the establishment of modern methods of construction expertise, centred around environmentally friendly products and transportation methods, can establish Chatham as a centre of excellence for making and mending. Therefore, this innovative project will purposefully re-establish Chatham as an essential hub of culture, service, and logistical importance.
