Powys building firm reveals £60 million Welsh projects plan
A Powys construction firm will be carrying out an additional £60 million worth of projects in Wales over the next 12 months.
Wynne Construction has announced that it will be commencing with a number of builds and schemes across Wales in the coming year, including major school builds in Powys.
The company is hoping to consolidate its growth over the previous 12 months, during which it added 16 new employees to its design, social value and onsite teams.
Managing director of Wynne Construction Chris Wynne said:
“It is encouraging to see the coming year looks to be a promising one for Wynne Construction, especially as it’s been a particularly challenging time for the entire industry which thankfully looks to now be stabilising.
“Winning major contracts and the resulting staff growth speak volumes to the level of passion and commitment shown by all members of the team, and I cannot thank them enough for their commitment and high quality of work delivered on all projects.
“With a strong pipeline of work ahead of us this year across Wales, we are looking forward to working with the communities around our builds, as well as developing further ties with the vital local supply chains which we source for our schemes where possible.
“Through the Wynne Futures Foundation, we will also continue our strong commitment to supporting our Welsh-based SME supply chain with a target of over 60 percent to be spent with Wales.”
The new developments come as the company looks to finalise a number of major sites across Powys and Mid Wales, including the £7m development of Ysgol Gymraeg Y Trallwng in Welshpool, as well as continuing major builds within the region, such as the £18m new build of Newtown’s Ysgol Cedewain.
The planned 150-place school in Welshpool, under construction by Wynne after they were appointed to the role by Powys County Council, was supposed to be completed in November 2022 but was delayed as a result of supply chain issues.
The school is now scheduled to be open after April 2023.
Wynne construction has also stated that it plans to introduce more than 75 apprenticeships and work placement schemes across 2023 for the next generation of the industry.
