The Foundry, Building B

The works to this Grade II Listed former canal-side wharf building were designed by their owner and occupant, Cullinan Studio. Achieving BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, the Foundry is naturally cross-ventilated while an air source heat pump serves under-floor heating. A new independent steel frame on isolated pad foundations was constructed within the existing building to support the bowing Victorian solid stock brick canal-side elevation, which was then tied back to the existing brickwork, timber floor structures and exposed timber roof trusses.

 

To provide natural ventilation and daylight to the basement level, the new steel frame allowed the ground floor to be cut back to form a double height atrium. Other works generally consisted of:

  • Breaking up basement floor slab and replacing with new super-insulated slab.
  • Partial retention of the original wall along Baldwin Terrace and extension in Metsec framing with facing brick and insulated render.
  • New Velfac high performance double glazed windows.
  • New ground and upper floor finishes, reusing exiting floor joist where possible & incorporating wet underfloor heating.
  • New exposed steel staircases at either end of building & new DDA platform lift.
  • Refurbishment & retention of existing roof trusses, new super-insulated roof build up including recovering in reclaimed Welsh slates.
  • Air source heat pump serving underfloor heating and radiant ceiling panels.
  • Photovoltaic panels generating part of the building’s electrical requirements.
