Navy Clock Tower
Restoration of the clocktower in the Noval Dockyard, Fort
Location – Shaheed Bhagat Singh Road | Client – Brihnmumbai Municipale Corporation
This Clocktower in the Naval Dockyard is over 200 years old. The building that houses the tower, was built in 1807 as part of the original Naval Dockyard constructed by Lowji Wadia. It is a Grade-I heritage structure with a unique architectural style. The clock that can be seen at present was installed by the company Messers, Lund and Blockley in 1904. The tower is an important landmark to the skyline of Mumbai. An integrated approach for the project includes conceptualizing a comprehensive conservation scheme with necessary and minimal intervention, without disturbance to the setting of the structure, proper structural repairs to the wooden framework and restoration of the masonry of the tower.
