£1m refurbishment awarded to Pave Aways
A £1m contract to refurbish County Hall in Llandrindod Wells has been awarded to building firm Pave Aways.
The firm, which has its Welsh headquarters in Wrexham, will carry out the work on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government.
The £1m scheme will include the strip out of the existing building and reconfiguring it with a more open plan layout including installing partitions and services as well as the final finish.
Work will begin when Government restrictions on movement are lifted. Pave Aways has currently suspended work on sites to protect the welfare of its staff, sub contractors and suppliers.
Managing Director Steven Owen said: “We are delighted to have won this competitive tender and look forward to starting work when the current coronavirus crisis is over and renewing our relationship with the Welsh Assembly.
“We will be utilising businesses in our supply chain within a 30 mile radius of Llandrindod Wells with a pledge to procure 90 per cent of resources and services from Wales. This will be a welcome boost for them after what will be a very uncertain period for many.”
Previous projects Pave Aways has delivered for the Welsh government include a £4.6m Invertek Drives factory in Welshpool.
Other on-going builds in Wales include the new Church in Wales Primary School in Welshpool and converting Ladywell House in Newtown into a hub for small businesses, both of which are being carried out for Powys County Council.
