The conversion of the former HQ of Ogdens Tobacco Building, a Grade II listed, Queen Anne-style 19th century building into 19 apartments.

Detail

Brock Carmichael’s key role in the £3.1M conversion of offices into apartments was to retain the character. This included carved timber fireplaces, Liver bird mosaics at the entrance and a grand staircase with oak panelling throughout. The bell tower dating back to 1899 and clock have also been fully restored.

The transformation won ‘Affordable Housing Scheme of the Year‘ for Torus at the Northern Housing Awards 2019 and a commendation at the RTPI North West Awards for Planning Excellence 2020. The Clock Tower won Highly Commended for ‘Preservation and Rejuvenation’ in the North West Regional Construction Awards 2019.
