Gardner's Warehouse in Jamaica Street , designed by John Baird, dates from 1856 and is the oldest completely cast iron fronted commercial building in Britain. The facades to both Jamaica Street and Midland Street are fashioned entirely in cast iron and plate glass following a simple and graceful pattern. We were appointed to carry out a historic analysis, documentation and record of the building's metalwork and woodwork. In 2000, after an extensive refurbishment, the building re-opened as a bar and restaurant.
