One year of work will be enough to transform the former Esat des Papillons blancs building, 2 rue Émile Marcheche, in Concarneau, into a new association space. In the Kersalé region, the carpentry workshop has been converted into a completely renovated building of 885 square metres, consisting of completely new offices. “Once the old Esat moved to Colguen in 2019, we asked ourselves a question about the future of this building,” recalls Mayor Marc Pigott. Faced with a lack of space that some associations regret, this free site presented itself as an opportunity not to be missed for the city.
Renovated space will benefit book and seaPhilatelic Association, Twinning Committee and AVF (home of french cities). “The associations with whom we identified the project to best meet their expectations,” says Marc Pigott. Offices, water points, an archive room… “It’s a turnkey project that we give them,” the mayor confirms. AVF members will be the first to drop their boxes this weekend. The urgency was greater because the existing structures of the structures no longer met their needs. Starting from the bottom of the boom barrack

In Krsali, occupants will also be able to take advantage of a common meeting room of 56 square metres. And that’s not all: a large storage site has been created for the Concarneau Regatta, CCAS and Marche Avec. With just 120 square meters of space for them, the Filets Bleus should finally have no problems when storing the Queen’s carriage… “All that’s missing is the road running outside. An upcoming project this time will be managed by Concarneau Cornouaille Agglomeration,” adds Thierry Le Curie, Living Environment and Fittings Associate and works.
Second building renovated
As part of this operation estimated at €738,000, the city also acquired a second building located a few meters from the previous workshop. Inside, another storage site of 380 square meters will be used by the city’s various technical services. The mayor notes that “due to a lack of space, materials were deposited on the right and on the left, which wasn’t really ideal.” From now on, the Roads, Culture and Green Spaces sections will benefit from the allocated storage space.
