The historic Pierhead building in Cardiff has reopened as an events and visitor attraction.
Formerly the offices of the Bute Dock Company, the Grade One listed building in Cardiff Bay has now been opened to the public following a period of renovation and restoration.
Working on behalf of the National Assembly for Wales, international consultant, WYG, provided project management, cost control and CDM co-ordination on the project, which enabled the opening deadline of St David’s Day to be met, marking 10 years of devolution.
Paul Morgan, Director, WYG Management Services said: “We are delighted to continue our successful relationship with the National Assembly for Wales. The revamped Pierhead building offers visitors an interactive experience using audio visual presentations, enabling them to explore the history of the building and its changing landscape over the years.”
The development also aims to complement the work of the Assembly and engage voluntary and community organisations in public debates and exhibitions, with the aim of widening involvement in democracy.
