After a century of history, a project to transform Great Yarmouth’s historic Art School from a decrepit squat into a beacon social housing project saw the creation of 18 new affordable flats and the preservation of the Grade II listed building.
A year of work by Wellington saw a team of around 30 workers renovating and restoring the building, which had become derelict and something of a magnet for anti-social behaviour after closing in the 1990s.
The work was carefully undertaken to preserve the iconic exterior of the building, while dividing the interior into discreet individual affordable homes.
