Dovecot Tapestry Studios

E&Co were appointed as the structural consultants to convert the redundant Victorian swimming pool complex at Infirmary Street into studios and exhibition spaces with offices for the Dovecot Tapestry Studios, and further office and residential development. The original men’s pool had survived, although unusable, but much concrete was removed to lower the new basement level, while the superstructure was retained. Modern interventions were appropriate replacements to the demolished ladies pool
