Historic redundant buildings converted into modern offices for Derby charity

The Liversage Trust, an historic Almhouses Charity with a legacy dating back to 1529, has successfully revamped a redundant site on Alice Street in Derby. This site, situated within the Nottingham Road Conservation Area, has been revitalised into contemporary offices and workshops featuring courtyard parking.

The Liversage Trust, renowned for its commitment to offering accommodation and care for Derby residents in need, boasts a diverse and well-managed property portfolio comprising 163 Almhouses, a 40-bed care home, and an array of commercial units and residential properties across the city.

The charity’s flagship site is the historic Almshouses on London Road, dating back to 1836, which stands opposite the new Nightingale development.

With plans to convert the Almshouses including the on-site office; a development project began to relocate the offices to the redundant building on Alice Street. The Alice Street buildings are of the 1930’s period and have a character typical of functional industrial buildings with solid brick Flemish bond walls, steel industrial small paned windows of the Crittal type and slate pitched roofs.

The offices are now fully renovated and are a blend of modern amenities and sustainable design elements. Their completion marks a significant milestone for the Trust and makes a positive contribution to the preservation of the Nottingham Road Conservation Area.

Architect, Matthew Montague said: “The new offices will add great operational benefit to the Trust, enhance the future viability and prosperity of the conservation area and strengthen the trust’s portfolio. The project has gone well on site and we are delighted to handover ahead of schedule.”

Andy Mellors, General Manager of The Liversage Trust, said: “We are delighted with the completed project; the new space meets the evolving needs of our organisation and reflects our commitment to historical preservation; all of which allow us to keep the heritage and work of The Trust progressing and moving forwards.”
