Spike Island Artists' Studios, Bristol

This 1960s industrial building built as a tea bag manufacturing factory has since been used as artists’ studios and a gallery since. The building refurbishment provided better quality gallery space, a café and improved workshop facilities. The engineer’s contribution was to design a new ‘lightweight’ concrete floor that could form a gallery ceiling and be installed without the need to straighten existing structure or foundations. This project was part funded by the Arts Council.

Completed 2007.
