We’ve been appointed as the delivery vehicle for £1.5m of improvements to the North End Shipyard Dock Gates in Hull.

The two-phase project includes structural improvements and repairs to the dry dock gates, including designing the new permanent solution to support the berthing of the recently restored Arctic Corsair.

We’re working in partnership with Hull Maritime and our supply chain partners Spencer Group and the project is expected to be completed by Spring 2024.

Phase one includes site investigations, creating a watertight structure within the dock and reinforcing and repairing structures to strengthen and prepare for the construction of the dock gate.

It also includes developing a permanent design for an entrance to the dock that will maintain the watertight integrity once the Arctic Corsair has been moved into position.

Phase two includes constructing the designed solution to maintain integrity and ensure the dock is watertight, constructing a permanent dock wall behind the stoplogs and making the area structurally sound.

The work is part of Hull City Council’s major programme of maritime works to create an exciting new maritime route which will guide visitors through the heart of Hull.

“The Maritime Project”, currently under development and delivery by the Major Projects and Infrastructure Team, includes the regeneration of the Arctic Corsair, North End Shipyard, Spurn Lightship, Dock Office Chambers and the Hull Maritime Museum.

Hull Maritime is funded by Hull City Council and The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
