The “Old Tannery” in Wellington was established in 1871 as the Western Tanning & Boot Company and later declared a historic site.

With the Old Tannery unoccupied since 2007, the property began to decay and when the current owners purchased it, the buildings were seriously dilapidated. This, and the lack of detail regarding existing services and structures, created many challenges regarding the structural integrity of the building, that had to be overcome during the construction phase.
