The remaining brewery building has been conserved to provide the new accommodation and public facilities. The 100-year-old, 30m-high brick chimney will be retained as the last of its kind in Redruth. Wider regeneration plans centred around the brewery include housing, a hotel and micro-brewery.
Our design incorporates a large rooflight, introducing daylight to the heart of the building and allowing views of the landmark chimney. The characterful roofscape is retained and enhanced with contemporary copper insertions uniting the buildings into a cohesive whole.
Purcell was been appointed to lead the project team in adopting BIM Level 2 processes on this project. Collaboration is always a key component of any successful project, and adopting BIM Level 2 principles aligned to the clients brief has ensured a well-coordinated outcome for this project.
