Project name: Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, Sixth Form Block

Location: Wrexham

Contract: JCT D&B 2011

Value: £1,470,000

Duration: 40 weeks


New single storey sixth form block delivered on a Design and Build basis through the North Wales Construction Framework.

Awarded by Wrexham Council through the North Wales Construction Framework, this £1.5m Design and Build project was joint funded by the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools Programme and Wrexham County Borough Council.

MODERN METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION – A SIP’s solution (structurally insulated panels) was delivered following evaluation of masonry and steel frame structure alternatives. This was co-ordinated using Revit to ensure all penetrations for M&E service runs were taken into account which resulted in ZERO on site cutting or alterations to the panels – reducing waste and minimising on site risk.

POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS – Our team maintained a close collaborative working relationship throughout the project with all stakeholders. The resulting handover questionnaire feedback from the staff resulted in 100% positive response for all aspects including on time delivery, management of the works, quality and snag resolution, as well as 100% satisfaction with the Read team.
