Dowlas were appointed as Project Lead by Beckery Island Regeneration Trust to bring these historic buildings back to life.​

Funded by the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ Towns Deal Fund initiative (which aims to regenerate towns and deliver long-term economic and productivity growth), the £12m project sees the restoration and conversion of a 19th-century tannery and glove factory that lay derelict for over 40 years.​

​Significant benefits from this project include:​

  • ​Ensuring future public access and community use ​
  • Ensuring a financially viable and sustainable future for the buildings ​
  • Creating employment opportunities ​
  • Adopting green principles for the build and operational phases to contribute to mitigating climate change and build resilience ​
  • Re-use of the building structure and materials, immediately reducing the impact and carbon emissions of the construction process ​
  • Enabling growth, whilst limiting energy use and environmental impact ​
  • Providing local job opportunities, reducing the need to commute
  • Improved quality of life
