Objective

To carry out the internal refurbishment of St Michael and All Angel's Church in Paulsgrove to create a more appealing and flexible space for its local community.

Solution

Mountjoy refreshed tired internal spaces, replaced fixtures and fittings and improved the environmental performance of the 1950s building. A new kitchen and servery was installed and new toilet facilities have been created.

The new flexible, attractive space will allow the Paulsgrove community to hold events, playgroups and workshops run by the church co-operative.

The team had to work in close collaboration with the Church to get the project finished on time, especially considering the fact that a wedding had been pre-booked a week after the original completion. Through careful planning, Mountjoy was able to complete a week earlier, leaving plenty of time for the Church to get ready for the ceremony.

Gambol Parker, Assistant Director for Engagement and Social Enterprise at the Diocese of Portsmouth’s CSR branch, said of the project; “Our contractors, Mountjoy, have not only been terrific, respectful and conscientious but have completed a week early. We are really, really happy.”
