Project Description

Shaylor Group secured this project through our involvement with the Cornwall Council Framework and completed the construction of new fisherman's stores and offices together with various improvement works to the harbour side. The new building was constructed to replace a timber built structure that was burnt down some time ago; it consists of seven stores on the ground floor, with four first floor offices available for rent together with the accessible ancillary rooms to the first floor.

The new facility was built with contractor designed deep piled foundations and ground beams to take into account the poor ground conditions within the quay itself and finished with natural  Brazilian slate roof to match the adjacent RNLI building. The front elevations also incorporated natural stone walling to match adjacent buildings bedded with natural lime mortar to ensure the new building was in keeping with the Grade II Listed status of the harbour.
