South Essex Naval Architecture School is set with a newly proposed dry dock next to the Tilbury Port of London in Essex. The port operation as the major business of the area is isolated from the people in the town. The site at the threshold and intersection of the town and the port is to develop schemes that act as the catalyst to bond the connection. River Thames and ships are the mutual elements that characterize Grays and Tilbury Port. A naval architecture school that offers long term impacts on education and job opportunities can perfectly fulfill the linkage that is not present in the current situation. The skills of ship design and technology could boost the identity of the area.
