Western Power Distribution
Outdated buildings occupied by Western Power Distribution have been redeveloped to provide office, workshop and warehouse space along with external storage to assist the company’s activity in the rapidly evolving energy sector in Cornwall.
The redevelopment was designed to complement the adjacent Cornwall College buildings and to enhance the physical environment as a high profile gateway to Pool.
Some remediation of the site, blighted by naturally occurring contaminated materials and former mining activity – including three identified former shafts/workings was necessary; along with the safe removal of asbestos contaminated buildings.
An administration and engineering centre has been built which will meet the immediate and foreseeable needs of Western Power Distribution, whilst remaining flexible and adaptable to suit the requirements of a range of potential future users of the site.
