The offices gave the name to the building :D (Big Grin) 
Such a shame that the "castle" of the industry's owners, just behind the offices, is now being half-demolished to let place to an UNinteresting modern building...

Yes there is a coking plant in the valley, for direct use in the three furnaces, and also other industry like rolling mills etc. But the mines are further on the sides of the hills and produce iron-ore. This room may have been something like kitchen/banqueting hall.

By the way I like your picture very much, nice light from behind!

Thanks for the additional information - and for viewing and commenting! By the way, there were offices in this building as well as showers for the workers.

Coal ?? If it is the place I believe, the industry was/is steel

I really thought it was coal.... (there were quite some coal mines in the region, as well as a coking plant).....
