Bradshaw Gass and Hope

Bradshaw Gass & Hope was founded in 1862 by Jonas James Bradshaw (1837-1912). The other partners being John Bradshaw Gass and Arthur John Hope. 

The partnership is still practicing and their web site describes its history as follows, "Bradshaw Gass and Hope was founded in 1862 and has practiced from its current offices in Silverwell Street, Bolton, since 1871. The firm was probably the first ‘modern’, truly multidisciplinary practice with separate departments of Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Structural and Services Engineers.  The practice was founded on the patronage of the cotton mill owning classes and dominated the industrial scene in the Wigan, Leigh and Bolton districts. Commissions included Schools, Churches, Mills, Town Halls, Civic Centres, Libraries, Hospitals and Museums. By the late 19th Century the practice achieved a position of national pre-eminence.  Notable commissions have included Manchester Royal Exchange, the Le Mans Crescent Complex and Town Hall extension in Bolton and new Town Halls in Edinburgh, Stretford, Luton and Wimbledon."
