Churchfields, Newport, Pembrokeshire

Client: WWHA and Morgan Homes

VALUE: £6.25M

This is a prestigious and exciting development comprising quality social and private homes in the much sought after location of Newport, Pembrokeshire. Working closely with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park MCW was successful in securing planning consent and discharging some sensitive pre-commencement conditions in relation to ecology and archaeology in particular. The design brief was to develop a scheme to compliment the beautiful surroundings of the Pembrokeshire Coast and Mynydd Carnigli and comprises timber windows, slate roofs, traditional render throughout and re-introduction of native hedgebanks. The site is being developed on a constrained site which required careful planning and phasing to manage the impact on the surrounding community. 14 much needed social homes were handed over to Wales & West Housing Association in November ’19 whilst work on the first phase of 22 houses progresses for sale in early to mid-2020 (www.morganhomes.co.uk)

Coed y Dderwen, Cwmgwili

Client: Bro Myrddin Housing Association and Open Market Sales

VALUE: £3.4M

This project included a carefully planned mix of 10 social rented houses delivered with our partner Bro Myrddin and 14 homes for sale on the open market, which included 2 Discounted for Sale Affordable Houses to meet the local needs. MCW was responsible for land purchase, planning consent, all legal and statutory agreements and discharge of planning conditions. The open market homes have been hugely popular with only 2 remaining for sale. The 10 social houses were handed over to Bro Myrddin in January ’20 – some 2 months ahead of contract completion. This was achieved despite the challenges of a constrained site and some significant service diversions.

Parc y Cefn, Fishguard

Client: Wales & West Housing Association

VALUE: £3.5M

Design and Construct of 30 new homes to DQR standard on a topographically challenging site overlooking the harbour at Fishguard. The project required considerable earthworks to form the development plateaus, MCW selected and led the design team to optimise this solution with due consideration for quantity and nature of material. In parallel to this a Materials Management Plan was developed to allow material to be transported to a highways scheme being developed nearby which required general fill, diverting 45,000T of material from landfill. A phased handover was agreed with our Client with 10 houses being handed over for beneficial occupation some 5 months before contract completion and handover of completed scheme ahead of schedule.

We have found this company to be efficient in all aspects of Design and Build contracts. The quality of houses delivered has been of the highest standard and on this particular project has been delivered much sooner than the contract completion date. On a personal basis we have found them co-operative in all aspects
