    Default Park Davies Chemical factory revisit 1 September 2017


    Hello all writing another report on this place because i took a friend here a few days ago and found myself finding new bits of the building ive never seen before lol for anyone who hasn't seen this location before here is some history of the place


    The Parke-Davis building has a deceptive air of simplicity, but within the plain brick envelopes of the building there is a wide range of highly specialised facilities with differing functional and environmental requirements.
    The program comprises of several individual buildings that are positioned to suit their functional relationships; those concerned with the manufacturing processes being located in the centre of the site.
    These manufacturing units are steel framed and windowless. In contrast the research and administrative buildings are of reinforced concrete and fully glazed. To achieve overall unity both types of building are clad in grey brickwork with the structural steel tresses expressed externally by pressed metal fascia.

    Nicely photographed but the place is well thrashed.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
