Brewery Talk, Tour and Tasting

Brewery Talk, Tour and Tasting

Senior Architect James Ross will be giving an informal talk about our work at the new Springwell Brewery for Leeds based North Brewing Co as part of the upcoming Forum for the Built Environment (fbe) Leeds event to include a virtual brewery Tour and beer tasting.

Bowman Riley provided consultancy services on Springwell, a new brewery for North Brewing Co with offices and a taproom within an existing derelict 19th century brick-built former leather works in Buslingthorpe conservation area, Leeds.

Our role was to provide advice on all aspects of repurposing the existing building whilst retaining its heritage including making sure it is safe, dealing with the potential for contamination due to its history and rebuilding the culverted stream below. This enabled the building to be sympathetically converted to celebrate its industrial heritage and house a bright, modern brewery within.

Now complete, Springwell allows North Brewing Co to double their brewing capacity, open a new 500 person taproom, and move its bar and brewery HQ under one roof. Brewing output will increase to 16,000 hectolitres (2.8 million pints a year). The expansion has created new jobs and secured many more despite the Covid 19 pandemic.

The talk will be followed by a virtual tour of the brewery and beer tasting hosted by North Brew Co – four delicious beers will be delivered to your door!
