After winning a series of notable contracts this year, leading South Wales construction company Morganstone has secured a contract worth almost £4 million to construct the Trem-y-Cwm retirement complex in partnership with Rhondda Cynon Taff Homes.
This contract follows on from Morganstone being awarded a place on Lot Two and Lot Three of the Datblygu Cymru Framework which was established by RCT Homes in 2015.
The new scheme in Beddau, Rhondda Cynon Taff will consist of 32 one and two bedroom apartments for older people, and also includes a range of communal facilities for residents of the scheme. The new building will replace a rather tired complex that was demolished by RCT Homes earlier in the year.
Work is scheduled to begin in the coming weeks.
Philip Wilmington, project manager for Morganstone, said:
“Everyone involved is really excited to be working on this build. A lot of thought and attention has gone into the planning of the building and we cannot wait to see the completed site in the next few months.
“RCT Homes has spent a lot of time improving standards in communities and Morganstone shares these same values, which is why it is wonderful to be working alongside them for this development.”
Rhianydd Jenkins, development manager for RCT Homes, said:
“We are delighted to have appointed Morganstone to complete the construction works on our Trem Y Cwm project in Beddau. The new scheme will provide our residents with the very highest quality of accommodation in a perfect location, close to all village facilities.
“We are looking forward to working with the community throughout the construction period, to ensure everyone feels part of the project, and that our work progress on site is communicated well to the community as a whole.”
The facility will boast secure parking, a communal landscape garden and lounge area so its residents can socialise with family and friends. All apartments will have modern kitchens, walk in showers and internal balconies. Residents who have been re-housed due to the redevelopment will be invited to move back to the building once it is completed in summer 2017.
