Roof Renovations on Warehouses Complete
From Port of Jersey,
26 March 2018
30,000 new slates later, work on replacing the roofs on the
historic warehouse buildings along St Helier’s New North Quay is complete -
weeks ahead of schedule.
The five-month project, which started in November 2017 saw
the removal and disposal of its existing roof slates, batten and felt together
with repairs to the existing guttering and timber roof members. During the
replacement programme four skylights were installed in the roof area above the
Maritime Museum and Tapestry Gallery to improve natural light entering the
building. Masonry repairs to cracked joinery in parts of the historic building
were also undertaken by a specialist local team.
The works programme, which was funded by Ports of Jersey was
carried out by Jersey-based project managers and contractors, including W Horn
and Jubilee Scaffolding along with V & V Ltd for the masonry repairs.
Contractors worked in accordance with Historic Building guidelines, using
contractors, which had previously worked on heritage listed buildings.
Other than general maintenance and barring any major
incident, the new roof is not expected to require further major work for at
least 25 years.
