CBG are working with Medway Council on an ambitious Heritage Lottery Fund scheme at Fort Amherst, Chatham.
The fort dates back to the Napoleonic wars, and is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The vast site poses many logistical challenges, with a network of tunnels, barrier ditches and hilly terrain. The project includes the conversion of former gun casemates at the summit of the site into an open-air theatre; creation of a new visitor access to the site from the main road; installation of a new WC block and demolition of a former MOD office building to reinstate the historic lines of the lower site defences.
Engineering services include new power and water distribution across the site, M&E services to the theatre, landscape lighting, and diversion of a former UK Power Networks substation.
