Background information:
The engine room, together with the boiler house, was part of the electricity supply. The gas works generated electricity for their own use and sometimes for buildings in the immediate vicinity.
The engine room had various electrical installations, including a generator. A compressed air facility was also present in this engine room, also for use within the gasworks complex.

Architectural details:
This building has stone walls, the end facades are finished with capstones (made of concrete). On the roof is a double-sided dormer window, centered on the ridge of the gable roof. The construction of this dormer window is completely made of wood. The waterboards and wind springs too.
The façades are decorated with ornamental masonry and piers at corners of the building. The plinth is made of cement, which is applied to the brickwork. The steel frames on the ground floor are fitted with single glass panes that are fixed with putty.
