High street, swansea
family housing association
This contract involved the demolition of an existing building on one of the main routes into the centre of Swansea, in close vicinity to the train station. The contract involved close links with an archaeologist throughout the excavation stage due to it’s location adjacent to an old graveyard. The building was of traditional construction with concrete beam and block floors. The external façade included glazed panels and a rendered finish. The property was constructed for use as supported housing for vulnerable occupants, therefore all internal fittings were of a high specification due to the nature of the end user. These included underfloor heating, fully computer controlled heating and electrical system, trace hot water heating, lift, flood detectors, and a Photovoltaic system on the roof. The end user was highly delighted with the finished scheme, which exceeded expectations with very high quality.
