Southern Pavilion, Worthing Pier, Worthing, West Sussex
The Southern Pavilion at the end of Worthing Pier had previously been a nightclub but had sat unused for many years and the client elected to completely renovate the building ahead of agreeing a lease with a new tenant. The new tenant was to use the building as a café and wedding venue.
The project involved roof repairs, external repairs to windows, and curved timber cladding panels, along with the specification of specialist materials to provide a hard-wearing protective coating to the building. Internal works involved bringing back into use the steel crittall-framed windows, which had been over-boarded internally for decades.
Davis carried out this project when directly employed as a surveyor by a local authority.
