Contractor John Martin Construction is this week beginning public consultation following the award of a £5.5M contract to build a distinctive new lifeboat house and slipway for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in Padstow. The new building will be erected next to the existing boathouse at Trevose Head and will be home to the next generation of lifeboat, the Tamar class.
Work will begin on site straight after the Easter break. It will be the second lifeboat house to be built specifically to store and launch the new Tamar class lifeboat, following on from Dean & Dyball's work in Tenby in Wales.
Designer is Haskoning UK. Architect is Poynton Bradbury Wynter Cole.
