The Harris & Pearson Office Building, Brierley Hill
This grade II listed office building was built as a showcase by the former Harris & Pearson Company, firebrick manufacturers, in Brettell Lane, Brierley Hill, West Midlands. The building had been unoccupied for 13 years and was in a derelict state when acquired by the WMHBT, with the costs of repair again being in excess of market value.
Conservation building work to convert the building for modern-day use as commercial offices commenced in April 2004 and was completed in January 2005. The building was sold on completion and has been returned to use as prestigious offices.
The project was a regional finalist in the RICS Awards 2006, a national finalist in the Brick Awards 2006, and was awarded a “commendation” in the 2006 Civic Trust awards.
