Royal William Yard

Year: 1993 – 2004
Client: Plymouth Development Corporation / South West RDA

Howl Associates were appointed as term consultants for the five year life of Plymouth Development Corporation providing architectural and urban design advice on projects within their control, principally at the Grade I Royal William Yard. Work included appraisal of reuse options for the buildings, and interim repair works. We subsequently formed a joint venture company with a Plymouth based architectural practice to undertake the refurbishment of the envelopes of the Grade I Listed buildings in the RWY for the South West RDA. This involved the restoration of the limestone and granite facades and re-roofing works. The work on these buildings, which are of international historic importance, was undertaken in full liaison with English Heritage
