Mill conversion scheme completed
January 29, 2024

An historic mill conversion scheme in Wiltshire has now been completed, with more than half of apartments sold or under offer.

BSP Consulting was the structural and civil engineer on the project at Clarks Mill and Mill House in Trowbridge.

It involved conversion of the existing four-storey structure and the addition of an additional storey at the grade ll listed former mill. Design works involved detailed assessment of the existing structural elements including floor beams and cast iron columns. Following the assessment the developer was able to retain significant amounts of the structure.

The conversion has created 16 striking apartments in the heart of Trowbridge – six of which are already sold with a further three under offer.

BSP Consulting director Paul Elphick said: “The mill was built in 1860 for local woollen millers, the Clarks Company, and the conversion has created a range of stunning apartments in the town.

“It’s great news for Trowbridge that this mill conversion scheme has completed and is now being marketed, offering super apartments in a lovely location.”

Heritage expertise

Paul added: “BSP has extensive experience of breathing new life into historic properties and we were thrilled to have been appointed on the Clarks Mill and Mill House project. The scheme has created a sensitive and stunning conversion, which everyone involved can be proud of.”
