HE – Technical Tuesday – The Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings project
19 January - 13:00 - 14:00Free
This large complex of former industrial buildings is the focus of Historic England’s flagship project of rescue and regeneration. In this webinar, we will discuss some of the key conservation challenges in the design, procurement and delivery of the current £25m NLHF-funded project on the Main Mill, the world’s first iron-framed building. Besides design decisions on conversion, an innovative series of structural engineering interventions have been developed to enable re-use. The M&E services strategy, energy conservation and carbon reduction, fire safety, archaeology, and protection of bat habitats all need to be addressed in the conversion of this major Grade 1 listed building.
