Housing – Truman Brewery

Client: Huntingate Homes Limited

Architect: Architecture & Design Partnership

Developer: DCH Limited

This scheme involved the transformation of a derelict industrial area on the outskirts of Colchester into an imaginative residential development of over 200 units. In addition to new houses and a residential block the old Truman’s Brewery was both extended, comprehensively renovated and converted into apartments.

The scheme also involved the conversion of other fine 18th Century listed buildings into residential accommodation. Richard Jackson Ltd were responsible for the design of the strengthening and structural alterations of the existing buildings and for the civil and structural engineering design of the new build elements.
