Renowned as a centre for carpet manufacturing, this site was rejuvenated with the conversion of the former weaving mill into a new department store and hotel. Cundall was appointed to provide building services, structural and civil engineering for the conversion of the listed building into a Debenhams department store and a hotel.

The building was extended with the addition of 2-storey wings on each side of the mill to resemble a ‘glass box’ in order to meet planning requirements. The new department store and the extension wings achieve a total 3,100m² retail area. The hotel created on the upper three floors includes a new roof space mezzanine floor to provide up to 70 rooms.
