Mezzanine floor boosts regeneration project

Posted by Marianne

A £6.7 million regeneration scheme in a South Wales town will see the Victorian library converted into a community enterprise hub. A number of new services will be available including a drop-in advice centre, a crèche and a catering training facility, which will be constructed on a mezzanine floor level. Lifts and ramps will also be installed to provide disabled access to the new mezzanine floor.

Part of the old Newport Docks, the whole area is under redevelopment to bring the derelict wharves and warehouses back into productive use.

Led by Newport City Council, with funding being secured from a consortium of the Welsh Government, Newport Unlimited, the European Regional Development Fund and the Targeted Match Fund, the 19th century library is just one of the buildings in Pillgwenlly to be refurbished and put to more efficient use.

Keeping the original façade intact, the doors and windows will be replaced, while the lofty ceiling has proved suitable for the installation of  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring, a solution many businesses now opt for to extend floor space without the expense of a traditional extension.

As part of the overall project, a number of properties in Commercial Road will also be cleaned and restored, with the outward appearance of the buildings being retained.

The contract for the regeneration project was awarded to a firm of Newport builders, who will be offering two jobs to students presently on a construction skills course at a local training college, and further jobs to two local long-term unemployed people.
