Conwy Construction firm Brenig Construction have a reputation for being a very environmentally conscious company which have an eye on the environment, local supply, as well as sustainability and negating wastage that is associated with construction efforts, though their recent development in Llanfairfechan has brought all of that to the area, as well as invested heavily in it.
Alongside the Cartrefi Conwy Housing Association and Beech Developments, Brenig Construction worked tirelessly on the Maes Glanarfon development which supported 200 jobs in the North Wales area, including four apprenticeships.
Furthermore, Brenig Construction was tasked with building the affordable houses as well as managing the site. They used this opportunity to provide contracts for locally based construction suppliers as well as employ four apprentices, giving them 57 valuable weeks of paid on-site experience.
Throughout construction, Brenig Construction’s priority was to ensure a high level of involvement via local firms and workers, and they stayed very true to that aim with supporting jobs for well over 200 individuals, as well as providing contracts for local suppliers. (estimates courtesy of Cartrefi Conwy state that around 85 percent of all contracts in the site went to firms from North Wales)
This Conwy Construction firm went above and beyond with community involvement on the project – initially by committing themselves to work on nearby Llanfairfechan Library.
Furthermore, Brenig Construction hosted a series of site visits from local schools, as well as youth organisations – and arranged practical sessions for students and their tutors to gain very valuable site knowledge such as the type of timber framing used in the apartment blocks, as well as arranging a visit by the manufacturers of the external rendering used in the apartments.
Construction students at nearby Llandrillo College at Rhos on Sea gained valuable knowledge on the fitting technique – something which can’t really be learned without practical experience.
Furthermore, Brenig Construction provided inspiration for children by hosting visits from nearby Ysgol Babanod and Ysgol Pant y Rhedyn, who got the opportunity to tour the development, as well as plant a number of trees in order to mark the development’s finalisation.
Brenig Construction, with the Maes Glanarfon Development in Llanfairfechan were able to inspire future generations into the construction industry, provide much needed practical, paid site experience for four apprentices, bolster the local economy with a selective attitude toward North Wales based suppliers, as well as provide hands-on experience to a number of construction students. Amazingly, this firm also managed to finish the development three months early, ahead of the projected completion date in April.
There is no doubt that Brenig Construction and firms like them are indicative of the excellent businesses within North Wales.
