Bristol Brew House to undergo flexible conversion

Posted by Marianne

A closed-down brewery is to undergo a dramatic refurbishment to bring more dedicated office floors for the burgeoning creative sector to the city.

According to the developer, London based Verve Properties, it is a response to the increasing number of firms in the sector that are settling in the south west region. The first speculative refurbishment in Bristol since 2009, it is a further sign of growing confidence in the economy.

Under the plans announced by the developer, The Brew House will provide a cutting edge and flexible working space. While firms are being allowed to divide up the accommodation with their own  office partitioning  office partitioning, there will still be a total area of 25,000 sq ft available upon completion of the works.

It promises to be a major refurbishment, with the building having become largely neglected over the years.

Despite much of the building’s original features having been removed under previous refits, the developer feels that the remaining appearance of the Grade II listed building will still be a big draw.

A local property consultant, Tom Dugay, agrees. Speaking with local press, the office agency expert said:

“Bristol’s growing creative and cultural sector values space with character.”

He also feels that the fashionable location of London’s East End will be an influence on the final result, saying:

“Verve’s aim with this scheme is to bring some trendy Shoreditch character to the Bristol office market specifically to appeal to this sector which now accounts for 12 percent of all businesses in the city.”

Verve Properties has already worked on other schemes in Bristol, including the successful Paintworks development.
