A Grade II listed building as a former Presbyterian church, now forming themain headquarters for the housing association, incorporating three floor levels.
The services included a lift; heat recovery balanced ventilation system;heating; lighting power; emergency lighting; fire alarms and security CCTV
The project was commissioned by Blaenau Gwent County Borough to “bring back to life” the old Miners Institute Building, which was a challenge to the MEP services provision as the building is Grade 11 listed.
The design approach centred around regenerating the building as a community facility with social,educational and leisure features including an internet café to attract the younger community.
The former St Peters School building had fallen into disrepair and was commissioned by Torfaen CBC to extend and develop into a Heritage Visitor centre, complimenting the Iron works and Big Pit venues in the area.
The proposals included the provision of an interactive visitor facility and educational venue attracting local groups and schools. The design of the MEP services posed challenges in providing an unobtrusive installation without compromising new Building Regulations standards and acceptable comfort conditions.
This newly-refurbished venue in the historic Royal Chambers offers a wide choice of high spec spaces for businesses and organisations to hold training events, seminars, meetings, workshops and presentations.
The venue has five large training rooms, one IT suite and three smaller breakout/meeting rooms. The rooms are contemporary and light with state of the art facilities.
Located at the entrance to the historic Newport market, Royal Chambers is situated in the heart of Newport city centre, within easy walking distance of the railway station, bus stops and car parks.
