Dean Clough is a nationally renowned landmark collection of Grade II Listed mill buildings measuring two-thirds of a mile from end-to-end. Since 1983 the mill has become a celebrated model of regeneration housing a thriving and varied business community employing more than 3500 people in over 140 companies. Dean Clough is also a pre-eminent centre for arts, design and education, its 15 substantial buildings also include restaurants, shops, conference and leisure facilities, a hotel, a theatre and galleries.
A sympathetic design approach was adopted to refurbished and upgraded G Mill. Original architecture was restored; differentiating new work by using modern materials. The completed work created eight floors of flexible office space totalling 73,000 sqft, with a further 18,380 sqft of ancillary and storage space. A new passenger lift was built on the external facade to supplement the existing passenger.
Using a similar approach to G Mill, careyjones also sympathetically restored F Mill, a 6 storey mill building, through a series of varying floor plates available for fit out to the tenant’s specific requirements measuring 75,000 sqft in total. New hard and soft landscaping and dedicated car parking were also provided.
