Treadgolds, Portsmouth

Treadgolds was an Ironmongers from Victorian times until 1988 when it closed. The building was left as it was when it closed with many tools and equipment still in the locations they were kept in at this time.

Hampshire County Council ran the building as a museum for a short period but because of the strong connection to the local community who fought to save it from development it was acquired by the John Pounds Trust.

The second phase of work focussed on the existing warehouse spaces which saw them adapted to a community facility whilst retaining the essential historic features of the building. We worked with Pritchard Architecture to strengthen the historic floors over the basement areas, to ensure the existing roof trusses could take the new roofing and to install a new mezzanine floor.
