Mezzanine floor revitalises old chapel

Posted by Mark

Following a trend which is becoming increasingly popular, an historic old chapel in the Scilly Isles is the latest former church building to take advantage of the benefits offered by the installation of mezzanine floors.

The local council on the picturesque island of St. Agnes, the most southern of the islands which lie just off the coast of Cornwall, has recently granted planning permission to renovate and extend the original Bible Christian Chapel as part of a project to improve facilities for the island’s community centre.

Much of the island is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a number of rare plants growing on the heaths and grassland that make up the landscape. As such, stringent restrictions are in place to ensure that any building or renovation work is in keeping with the original landscape.

The proposed complete refurbishment of the chapel and installation of a balcony and mezzanine floor will increase the useable space in the original building. At the same time as agreeing the renovation, the council also passed plans for a new building to be erected alongside, which will include six workshops for local businesses. The proposed new building meets strict criteria, having been designed to mirror the architecture of the original chapel.

The installation of a  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level in the original chapel will create an extra multi-purpose space for community events whilst retaining the façade of the building and the workshops in the new building will give local business a boost.
