Conversion of former Chapel at Cardiff Royal Infirmary - Heritage Impact Assessment
The Urbanists were appointed by Gleeds to undertake the heritage impact assessment to accompany the listed building application for the conversion of the vacant CRI Chapel. It is proposed to repair, restore and transform the building into a library, information centre, and cafe.
The Heritage Impact Statement sets out that:
The proposed use of the building will ensure the replacement of a local community library facility. It will enable public access to the otherwise closed building, and enable full appreciation and comprehension of the broad values of the historic asset. The project will elevate the building’s prominence as a key part of the wider listing status of the Cardiff Royal Infirmary.
The significance of the historic asset will be increased through the scheme of works, by preservation and enhancement, and importantly through beneficial re-use as a vibrant community asset, ensuring its long-term protection and maintenance.
The Urbanists have considerable experience in securing significant permissions for works to listed buildings. Please contact Mark Farrar to discuss how the Urbanists can assist you with heritage projects and heritage impact assessment.
