Hafan Gwydir is a state of the art extra care facility and health centre for Llanrwst
and the surrounding area offering an increased range of community based health and
social services, a 40 bedroom extra care unit and communal facilities for older people.
. The development also includes a medical centre for the local GP practice and co-locates
NHS trust and local authority social services to provide an extended range of services
locally. The development was a partnership between Conwy County Borough Council,
Conwy Local Health Board, Llanrwst GP practice, North Wales NHS Trust and Pennaf
Housing Association. The development is a traditional 3 storey construction, with
strip foundations, concrete slab, blockwork walls with rendered and cedar clad finishes.
Upper floors were precast concrete with ‘liquid’ type screed, and the roof of trusses
and natural slate covering.
The project was completed on time to the high standards expected from our client,
and an integral part of it’s success was the close involvement with ourselves as
the principal contractor, not only with our client but with our various specialist
contractors and suppliers. We had soon built a close working relationship which enabled
the client’s requirements to be ascertained and any changes that may be required
to be identified and discussed, and implemented in good time without compromising
