The Development of Kvaerner-Govan Shipyard, Govan, Glasgow

The design and construction of the tank assembly workshops and the final form of the berth are described. The project, which was completed in 1991, includes a three-bay workshop building with leading dimensions of 136m length, 64m width, and 35m height to eaves. Other works include alterations to existing buildings, the strengthening of the roadway area between the workshop and the berth, and the development of the berth to include a skidding system and permanent launchways.
