Industrial Regeneration

Encouraging awareness of Britain's industrial legacy, coupled with appreciation for modern manufacturing industry, deserves a prominent place in strategies for regional development (Sir Neil Cossons, 2000)

During the 19th century Britain was at the forefront of the industrial revolution: a crucible of innovation and bold new technologies. Today, the strategic regeneration of the country's disused factories, mines, mills, canals and railways has become a key issue at both a local and national level. Brownfield sites are targeted as areas for redevelopment and industrial attractions have become an important aspect of heritage tourism.

Dealing with an industrial site appropriately, and cost effectively, requires specialist knowledge and an awareness of production processes, technologies and contamination issues. NAA has worked on a range of industrial sites and landscapes across the North, including former engineering, chemical and munitions factories, coal and lead mines, cokeworks, early railways and textile mills.
