The Bersey Warehouse.

The Bersey Warehouse

The Bersey Warehouse is a commercial building that was refurbished by main contractor Collins Construction Ltd and Architects Buckley Grey Yeoman.

Contemporary refurbishment of 1920’s textile warehouse into the office space, restaurant and retail space including the addition of two new storeys on top of the existing three-storey building and a basement below. Built between 1913 and 1939, this old building was transformed into a modern space that retains its character, enhanced with our patinated metal features.

The project aimed to keep the workspaces bright and airy, with the old building keeping much of its character. The project intended to bring a modern feel to the building, with large brass doors and architrave, all of the lift surrounds were of grained brass, which also completed the large green finished windows.  We manufactured and fitted all of the brass and copper work within this building as well as expertly manufactured and fitted all of the FCU covers. This project came with some unique challenges, most notably several different size units were used. Many of the offices had pipework close to adjacent walls, and fitting positions varied on each FCU cover.

A totally up to date look for a previously ‘tired’ building, whilst not listed it lies in the South Shoreditch Conservation Area and has been sympathetically converted with a striking colour specification combining green powder coating, brass cladding and copper panels. 

We manufactured copper verde facades, external window frames, internal and external signage, bespoke brass cladding doors and facies, lifts and staircase in green copper verde bespoke finish that suited the art deco feel of the building.

We used a bronzing technique to create a smooth textured finish on the lifts that complements the architect’s visual requirements. We also supplied the building with FCU covers that were specifically designed to suit the property while reducing vibration and noise.
