Village church plans mezzanine extension

Posted by Mark

A village church built in 1724 has been granted planning permission to add a  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level to the existing church hall. A glass corridor will then be constructed between the church hall and the main church building.

The village of Eversley in Hampshire has a growing population, with a number of different groups using the church hall at St. Mary’s – from pre-school classes to elderly and disabled clubs. The proposed plans will enable the church buildings to be more flexible, and allow for a greater configuration of room size to accommodate each group’s specific requirements. The glass corridor will be constructed for use by pedestrians and wheelchair users.

The cost of the project is estimated at over £300,000, which will have to be raised by the congregation and parishioners. While the majority of St. Mary’s Church funding has traditionally been through Sunday donations, a newly elected fundraising committee is now planning a number of events which will take place throughout the summer to boost the funds.

The construction will take place in two stages, with the installation of the mezzanine flooring level first on the agenda. This will provide much needed storage space and extra temporary meeting rooms while the church is undergoing the work.

A temporary wooden building will be erected in the car park while the second phase of the work takes place. This will see the construction of the connecting corridor and the completion of the conference room on the mezzanine floor.
