Client: Wensleydale Dairy Products
Contract Value: c£xxm
Williams-Architects have completed a number of projects for Wensleydale Dairy Products at Hawes, including a new Cheese Shop and Coffee Shop extension to the existing Visitors Centre, a new Maturation Store, and a new Production Facility. Located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the additions have been designed to be contemporary, yet sympathetic to the National Park setting.
The proposed new production facility is to replace the ageing, inefficient, existing collection of buildings and enlarge the operational space. It is designed to become the new modern frontage of the Creamery, reflecting on the many high quality products and core brand image of Wensleydale Dairy Products, whilst remaining sympathetic to its National park setting. It also sets new standards of visitor experience with a new museum, information zone and process viewing facilities. The new facility obtained planning approval with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, where Phase 1 was completed in 2012.
