Techniquest expansion

PostSat Mar 03, 2018 8:13 am

Wales online are reporting that Techniquest have plans to more than double the size of their existing operation in the Bay. Really good news, particularly following the demise of the Dr Who Experience. However, I'm a bit sceptical of the (circa £5m) price tag that's being quoted. You'd think the exhibits alone would cost more than that, let alone doubling the footprint of the building.

Fingers crossed that that this goes ahead and that the expanded building can help to tie together the area between Mermaid Quay and St Davids hotel. ... e-14345787

70% expansion surely, not "more than double".
Wonder where they're planning the get the funding for this. Last reports we heard was that their current funding was in jeopardy, and they were in danger of closing. This is a welcome change of fortunes.
