Bradford Conditioning House
SE 1633 35/330


Corner site with Cape Street. The Conditioning House was built by the Corporation
on continental precedents to check and control the moisture content of textiles by
means of laboratory examination and certify their true weight and length. It is
the only one of its kind in this country. The service was established in 1887 and
the Conditioning House was purpose built 1900-02 by the city architect F E P Edwards
to the designs of F Wild who died in 1901. The building is erected on 4-storeys and
basement around 3 sides of an open court. Restrained detailing with elements of the
Queen Anne style. Sandstone "brick" with ashlar dressings, ashlar ground floor and
vermiculated rustication to the basement, ie in the warehouse tradition giving
emphasis to the lower storeys. Centrepiece to Cape Street with pedimented blind
attic and ball finials, flanking pilaster strips and pilastered portal with ornate
east iron gates. The canted corner with Canal Road is similarly treated and the
return elevation is a long, plain range with 2 segmental pedimented blind attic
features: important corner site.
