Cotton Gardens is a prestigious building project in Bolton, UK, involving the conversion of the historic Union Mill into a modern residential complex. The Union Mill, originally built in 1875 as a prominent cotton mill, will be thoughtfully transformed into a residential space comprising 105 apartments with a mix of 1 and 2-bedroom units. 

Recognizing its historical value and potential, JP Maguire, a reputable property development company decided to undertake the ambitious project of converting the iconic Union Mill into a contemporary residential complex known as Cotton Gardens.

The development includes various amenities, such as a cinema room and a residents' internal courtyard garden. Safety is a top priority for the project, and to ensure the well-being of its residents, a category 3 sprinkler system designed to BS9251:2021 will be installed, utilizing the shared water supply for its operation.


Adapting a historic building to modern living standards while preserving its original features and character presented unique challenges that required a delicate balance between restoration and modernization.  As the mill is over a century old, the building's structural stability requires thorough assessment and reinforcement to meet contemporary safety standards. 

Base Fire Sprinklers have a vast experience in refurbishment projects, in particular those with listed building status. 

Implementing a category 3 sprinkler system necessitates compliance with the latest BS9251:2021 standards, including careful planning and coordination with fire safety experts. Sprinkler protection will be provided in line with the fire strategy to apartments and communal areas.
