Stothert & Pitt Building, 1880
The regeneration and adaptation of a group of iconic Victorian era industrial buildings dating back from 1857 to 1905. Originally housing the esteemed Stothert & Pitt Ltd, known as 'the cranemakers to the world,' these buildings hold a significant historical legacy within the industrial development of the River Avon. This £11m creative workspace development of the derelict Grade II Listed Newark Works aimed to create 40,000 square feet of workspace accommodation in Bath, Somerset.
"Breathing new life into a building of historic significance while using roughly a third of the carbon footprint of a new construction" - Richard Pearce | Founder
Located within the Bath Quays development, the refurbishment is a testament to the buildings' rich history, preserving its industrial and historical features while upgrading them to accommodate modern ways of working. The project involved the repair, alteration, and conversion of Newark Works to offer an inviting space for like-minded businesses, particularly those in the creative industry sector.
