Funding jackpot for St Ives

By January 18, 2017 No Comments

McCaren Architecture are celebrating after the Department for Communities and Local Government announced that a ‘jackpot’ allocation of £3.25 million in Coastal Communities Funding would go to the St Ives Coastal Community Team, to deliver a new enterprise hub for the town.  We’ve been working with the St Ives team on an exciting plan to convert a long-vacant building in the heart of the town. Fully accessible on three levels, the practice’s design includes seminar and event space; two public cafés plus professional catering facilities for pop-up events; rentable office space; informal hot-desking facilities; and meeting rooms.  When complete, the facility will operate as a Community Interest Company (CIC) – a form of organisation that uses its profits and assets for the public good.
