Since 2014, we've supported and worked alongside Door of Hope Christian Church in its endeavour to breathe new life into its heritage-listed South Launceston property.
This is a property without equal in Tasmania, and arguably Australia. A property that once was a life-blood for northern Tasmania through industry and the subsequent employment that it offered, is being reimagined, repurposed, and revitalised to once again bring life to, and support the northern Tasmanian community.
The iconic former Coats Patons textile factory has long represented a significant and historical part of Launceston’s industrial era. This building has been widely accepted by Heritage Tasmania as a “fine and particularly large example of an Inter-war Chicagoesque industrial building, being the largest single building believed to have been constructed in Tasmania prior to the 1920s, and for the innovative way the mill was expanded by raising the roof in the 1930s.”
According to an Examiner Newspaper report in 1922, in the first stage, around 25,000 cartloads(!) of earth was removed, 1.5 million locally made bricks were used, and 5,500 m2 of glass was used in the sawtooth windows.
Across the past half-dozen years or so our team has been involved with a range of redevelopments and projects at Door of Hope. Some of these include Launceston Conference Centre's recently opened exhibition centre, Palmer's Dance Studio, extensions to PYCSAM Health & Fitness Club, and numerous others.
It is a fascinating property rich in history and holds a strong and meaningful connection to the Launceston and northern Tasmanian community.
