GPJ Consulting Engineers were employed by Penzance District Council to design the Mechanical and Electrical services for the refurbishment of this old sail loft within the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole.
Named after the ill-fated lifeboat, the Solomon Browne Memorial Hall has been designed to become a hub for community activities. The building was an empty shell and required major construction works to make it habitable.
New electrical supplies, heating, domestic services, lighting, alarms, communications and ventilation were all designed to sympathetically blend within the historical building. The lower floor of the building was split to form a small visitors centre and to become a home for the world famous Christmas light displays during out of season periods.
