RLD constructed Canolfan Dyfi, located in a prominent position with stunning views
on the wharf at Aberdyfi, the new building was to replace a 100 year old building
which had been used by Outward Bound Trust as a centre for water based activities.
The new building provides modern facilities for Outward Bound to continue their activities
in Wales, together with two business units, fishermens’ units and refurbished public
conveniences. The scheme included a number of environmental initiatives, such as
an underground rainwater tank and solar panels on the roof to supplement water and
electricity use within the building. In addition, being located within a Conservation
Area, there is an emphasis on the use of oak, copper and slate in order to enhance
the quality of the design.
