Conversion of Grade II Brewery to Social Housing, Workington

Impact Housing wanted to maximise the conversion from Jennings Brewery at Ladies Walk, Workington to affordable, rented accommodation.

Major structural alterations were restricted by the building’s Grade II listed status.  The building also lies in a flood plain and measures were intergrated into the design to mitigate damage in the event of  flood defences being breached.

The project involved working closely with the client decision team and contractor to overcome design issues encountered when modifying old structures of this nature.

We like to think we have preserved this iconic building for the people of Workington for the foreseeable future.
