Duke's Auction House, Dorchester

Acheson redeveloped this large redundant office building, formerly known as Pullman Court, which is immediately adjacent to the vibrant new Brewery Square development at the heart of Dorchester for Duke's Auctioneers, who are one of Dorset's oldest businesses (established in 1823). 

The fantastic new 15,000 sqft premises benefits from on-site parking for 80 cars, an impressive reception area and offices, exhibition space, auction galleries, secure storage and catering facilities.

Externally the building was treated to a face lift to improve its appearance and give it a contemporary look, which matches the surroundings within the Brewery Square development.  The transformation of Pullman Court and the creation of this new arts hub has received widespread plaudits from several high profile local dignitaries including Cabinet Minister and West Dorset MP, Oliver Letwin; Head of Development at Poundbury, Simon Conibear; Former CEO of Eldridge Pope, Jeremey Pope JP OBE and Lord Fellowes of West Stafford (otherwise known as Julian Fellowes, the Oscar winning playwright and author).
