Bouygues UK has announced details of a further two contracts in Wales – adding to its recent tally of award wins in the western region over the last couple of months.
The contractor confirmed details of a new deal, worth just over £21.1m, with The City & Council of Swansea; for the internal and external refurbishment of 238 flats spread out across two high rise towers and a residential block, in the districts of Sketty and Penlan.
The construction company won the contract under the South West Wales Regional Contractors Framework and is collaborating once again with architects Stride Treglown and engineers Aecom. Work is due to begin on site shortly and the project is scheduled for completion in April 2017.
Separately, and following news of the Taylor Wimpey deal in London, Bouygues UK has now added a second 150-home development to its order book; this time in the Welsh capital, Cardiff.
Bouygues UK confirmed details of the new scheme which will provide a combination of 146 flats and 12 townhouses as part of the affordable housing element of a Section 106 agreement, governing the wider regeneration of the International Sports Village site in the Cardiff Bay area.
Bouygues UK’s Managing Director for Western, Chris Stevens, said: “We are winning repeat business and leveraging our strong credentials with clients and local authorities in the area to secure new contracts, based on our reputation for delivering high quality and sustainable schools, educational facilities and mixed-use housing schemes.
“These recent wins underline Bouygues UK’s continued commitment to reinforcing our presence here in the region and the value we place on its potential for future business. Going forward, we also intend to expand our work in the West to increase our market share and further strengthen our position and brand on a wider, regional basis.”
