Team:         Quantity Surveyor – PT Projects

We have been appointed by the Jubilee Pool, Penzance to review the potential for improving the facilities of this historic Grade 2 listed public sea bathing pool. We are currently exploring ways that enable the pool to operate as a year round visitor attraction. Our facilities will tie together the pool's plans to use geothermal energy to create a warm thermal bathing facility/spa and create a new year-round cafe/restaurant alongside a suite of community and therapy spaces.

These proposals will contribute to the regeneration of Penzance and will provide tangible benefits for both the local community and visitors to the town.

Geothermal drilling is currently being carried out at the pool financed by the European Regional Development Fund. It is anticipated that the creation of a heated bathing area will increase visitor numbers and, supported by this application, provide a year-round facility, bringing wider benefits to the local economy. In order to benefit from the available geothermal energy an additional £350,000 is needed to be raised by crowd funding amongst the local community and other supporters, of which £200,000 has already been pledged. Information on the Community share offer is available on the website
