NHBC Awards Wales

The future is bright for The Bay

The Bay- Bangor Coast, NHBC Awards 2013

Situated on the Bangor coast, The Bay housing estate is a fantastic new development for North Wales.

Work on the site is currently making great progress and thanks to a spot of good weather the development remains on schedule.

The Bay – known as’ Y Bae’ in Welsh – comprises of 72 dwellings, serving up a mix of high quality apartments and beautiful modern houses. The development benefits from a picturesque sea view, which looks out towards Snowdonia and Anglesey.

Within the development many of the 3 storey houses have a sliding door/Juliet balcony, whilst all interior fittings on the houses are modern, and certainly meet the requirements of new home owners. Externally the new buildings are being finished using a combination of facing brick and coloured render.

One striking feature within each of the houses is the balustrades which are finished in chrome and hardwood, presenting a stand out feature that is both durable and aesthetically pleasing.

After a few mild difficulties at the end of last year,  due to the terrible British weather, the project is back on course to reach its scheduled completion date. The project, which began in July 2012, is now estimated to reach completion in July 2014.

Each of The Bay houses has their own gardens, allowing homeowners to be able to enjoy the warmer months, whilst relaxing in the privacy of their own homes. Moreover, each of the apartments has their own communal area which provides a mix of soft and hard landscaping.

The Main Contractor of the project Watkin Jones is well known for giving a wealth of energy, experience and expertise to every project they do, ensuring a standard of excellence that’s renowned and respected throughout their industry.
