Marina customers will be able to benefit from a raft of new facilities at Inverclyde’s James Watt Dock Marina.

A planning application has been submitted for a new £1.25m marina administration building to provide an operational office for the marina together with new facilities for marina customers.

"We have been working closely with Richard Robb Architects and the project team over the last few months to bring forward a building design which meets the future needs of the marina whilst at the same time acknowledging the local environment," explained Geoff Phillips, executive chairman of Marina Projects which owns James Watt Dock Marina.

A bistro café and three retail and office units have also been incorporated in the design.

“Although designed with a modern concept the carefully selected materials respond to the rich James Watt Dock Heritage and we anticipate that the proposals will be viewed favourably by the planning authority,” added Mr Phillips.

And he explained how the investment in the new building forms part of the ongoing and long term commitment by Marina Projects to the expansion and development of the James Watt Dock Marina business.

The building is due to be completed by 2020.
