Workspace step nearer completion


WORK to create 40,000 sq ft of creative workspace in Bath has taken another step forward.

Property regenerati­on company TCN UK has invested more than £9m into transformi­ng the former Stothert and Pitt building in Bath Quays into Newark Works. The transforme­d building is set to become the latest creative workspace hub in the city centre.

After several attempts to restore the building’s enormous roof, the 170-year-old timbers were found to be rotten beyond repair.

But removing the roof inspired TCN staff to put in some large skylights to complement the office spaces.

The 19th-century brickwork has also been jet-blasted to reveal its original, pristine state.
