An historic former dairy building in Penzance is to be converted to provide high spec office accommodation with support from European Convergence investment.
The Dairy Knights building, in Belgravia Street, will be converted to provide168m2 of office accommodation with high speed broadband access. The completed development will provide offices for up to 13 people and is estimated to be completed in February.
The project, worth £242k, has been approved for just under £90k from the ERDF Convergence Programme.
The project will be delivered by BBCB Ltd, whose director, Neil Badcock, said: “This investment has made all the difference and without it the project and the resulting employment space would not have happened. We are very positive that there is demand for high quality office space in Penzance.”
“As a small company we needed help with the application process and I can’t speak too highly of the officers involved within the South West RDA and Cornwall Development Company. Although the application process can appear daunting, on the basis of our experience I would encourage other businesses in Cornwall who have a good project to persevere.”
