Space description

The former retort house was built in 1909 on a gasworks site of 1841-2. It was designed by Birmingham Council’s Gas Department, under the supervision of the Engineer-in-Chief Walter Chaney and with the involvement of the young gas engineer Cecil Carrington Barber. As the site where coal was carbonised to produce crude gas, a retort house was the heart of a gasworks. The former retort house is located behind (south) of 50 Adderley Street and to the west of the Warwick and Birmingham Canal. It is a steel-framed structure which was clad in brick and built on a long, oblong plan.
