The Amber Mill Furniture Rural Enterprise Centre
We were delighted to hear that the Amber Mill Furniture Rural Enterprise Centre (Amfrec) building received a commendation in the 2021 Derbyshire Historic Building Trust Awards for the Reuse of an Historic Building.
Quadrant Project Manager Tony Green said: “It was a real pleasure to work on this building; in particular the early contact from the agent to discuss fire precautions and means of escape plus great communication from the client and all involved kept this project moving smoothly.”
Originally built by Daniel Hopkinson in 1817 as a Mustard Mill, this grade 2 listed building was the home from the 1920s onwards for The Amber Mill Furniture Manuf. Co. Ltd, est. 1909, but in January 1955 the mill was ravaged by fire.
Between 2017 and 2021 major renovations were undertaken to transform the Mill into the new, unique, and stimulating commercial environment it is today.
Amfrec proprietor Ann Turner explained: “Our vision is to re-establish Amber Mill as a flexible business environment, reflecting the current commercial needs of a safe, adaptable yet inspirational space for the businesses and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.”
