Works are ongoing on Society Street, Ballinasloe, transforming the Old Bank Chambers building into a remote working hub, aptly named the “Ballinasloe Enterprise Hub”. This Enterprise Hub is a sister building of the Ballinasloe Enterprise Centre in Creagh.
BACD Clg, the new owners of the building are carrying out the project works and are currently looking for formal expressions of interest from prospective users/tenants.
Manager of the project Lyn Donnelly stated ”Since we started the renovation, we’ve had high interest and as a result started an informal waiting list. We have contacted everyone on that list and are now reaching out to others who may have an interest in availing of space. This will allow us to gauge the demand and fully optimise the space in the hub”.
The works commenced on site in March 2023 by John McNamara & Sons Ltd and are scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2024, which will also coincide with the BACD clg 25th Anniversary.
The project was given a welcome boost recently with grant aid received from Galway Rural Development through the LEADER programme to purchase the furniture for the hub.
The total cost of the project is over €1.5m and as BACD is a not for profit community development company were eligible to apply for partial grant funding. Funds were received from the Just Transition Fund, the Town & Village Fund & GRD LEADER Programme. BACD are backing the project with their own reserves and a business loan from Ballinasloe Credit Union.
When the project is completed, the building will be able to cater for over 40 people. If anyone is interested in renting space or using the hub for meetings, remote work, co-working space, enterprise space or hotdesking the Expression of Interest form is available HERE or by contacting Lyn Donnelly at email@example.com or 090 96 46516
