An extension project to expand Nant Gwrtheyrn’s facilities in North Wales is progressing well and is on track to complete in June this year.
Nant Gwrtheyrn is a secluded, picturesque Victorian village located on the northern coast of the Llyn Peninsula which attracts over 40,000 day visitors a year as well as a range of residential groups.
The Centre specialises in Welsh for Adults, as a second language, and offers intensive residential course during weekdays throughout the year and opportunities for weddings and other residential groups on weekends.
The site comprises 4* accommodation, with four self-catering cottages and 40 en suite bedrooms, meeting rooms and conference and dining facilities. Works have been underway since September 2014 to revamp the site to create a new dining room and a new detached group accommodation building and common room for 40 guests.
The construction team are now at the block work stage however works have been slightly delayed due to the weather. The project is now getting back on track and works will continue to construct the new bunk house structure with a slate roof, corrugated sheeting, timber framed windows, natural stonework wall cladding and external timber doors. Works will also include improving access and parking facilities
The £1.5 million project was commissioned by Nant Gwrtheyrn, who are also acting as the project managers, and Gwynedd County Council. B3 Architects are carrying out the architectural services, Datrys are acting as the structural engineer and R L Davies & Son Limited are the main contractor. R L Davies & Son Ltd was established in 1947 and are one of the principal building contractors in North Wales.
A spokesperson from R L Davies commented:
“We tendered for these works and have worked here previously on the last refurbishment project at Nant Gwrtheyrn. It’s brilliant for us to be involved in this scheme and is a great project to be a part of.”
