Boots the Chemist - D10 building
Boots the Chemist - D10 building
This building was built in 1930-32 to the design of Sir Owen Williams soon after the company moved to the Beeston site. Pevsner considers it to be one of the best twentieth century buildings in the county. The south front seen here shows how the cantilevered concrete construction allows the upper stories to be cantilevered out over the loading bays giving protection without any intermediate pillars. The mushroom-topped pillars which are used throughout and enable the intermediate floors to be relatively shallow, can be well seen in the nearest corner. They also enable a continuous run of glazing without intermediate pillars.
