Click Convert Gives School a Bright Future
Click Convert has announced plans to save the historic Llanfynydd Primary School from demolition.
As part of our expansion plans, Click Convert announce the purchase of the 19th century Llanfynydd school with the aim of preserving the building and investing in the community, creating the Llanfynydd Enterprise Centre
Click Convert has two main offices, with the head office currently based on the Bromfield Industrial Estate in Mold and the international office based in Santa Rosa, California. With the client base expected to double in 2018 and turnover already doubling in the US office in 2017, Click Convert now requires custom contemporary offices to accommodate growth, bringing much-needed employment opportunities to the area.
“One of the aims of this project is to allow this historic building to continue playing a part in the community,” said John Langley, Managing Director of Click Convert. “We want to bring new opportunities to a rural area, where businesses can set up practice locally instead of being forced to setup workspace in Wrexham or Chester.”
Llanfynydd Enterprise Centre will provide affordable office spaces for community start-up businesses, in addition to accommodating Click Convert’s exponential growth. The office spaces will have state-of-the-art facilities, including a 300mb internet access, fully-equipped kitchen with a barista-style coffee machine, fully stocked drinks refrigerator, hob and an outdoor pizza oven, promoting a friendly communal working environment for businesses to socialise.
“Enough is enough, we can’t keep knocking these Victorian buildings down.” said John. “We have to save our heritage.”
Prior to closure, the school held a final reunion party for former pupils. While chatting to attendees and looking around the building, John realised its potential and the need for an employment hub in the local community.
The school has historical importance for many, making it crucial that its external character is maintained as a well-loved feature of the village. The outside of the building and gardens will remain largely untouched with just a few modern embellishments, but the inside will be renovated in its entirety.
The project is already underway, with renovations expected to take approximately four months to complete. Click Convert aim to move into the Llanfynydd Enterprise Centre by the end of March 2018.
