P5 – Torquay Depot


Project: Gatehouse Refurbishment
Location: Torquay Depot
Client: Western Power Distribution
Role: Principal Contractor
Duration: 4 weeks

The gatehouse building at the busy Torquay Depot, adjoining a third-party property, is a listed building and former pottery. However, it had become disused and had fallen into disrepair.

Grant Construction was employed to carry out the refurbishment of the ageing facade, which involved render and masonry repairs, whilst
maintaining the original architectural keystone arch features. A specialist coating system was applied in-house.

The narrow access track (which was a public right of way) was resurfaced, whilst public access was maintained at all times.
