A North Wales construction firm is celebrating the completion of a £3m new business school at the Northop campus for Coleg Cambria.

The project to build the Coleg Cambria Ysgol Fusnes Business School followed on from the recent completion of a new engineering block as part of a £10m new build and redevelopment at the college’s Bersham Road campus, Wrexham. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In the past two years, Wynne Construction has also completed the £14m Post 16 Hub Sixth Form Centre, in a collaboration between the college and Flintshire County Council; and a new £2.5m University Centre, developed in partnership with Swansea University, both at the Deeside campus. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Two were commissioned under the Welsh Government-funded North Wales Construction Framework and 21st Century Schools programme. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Wynne Construction project manager Graham Dickson said all the work had been delivered on time and on budget.
He added: “By dedicating the same team to each project, Wynne personnel have provided consistency of contacts and on time delivery. It’s all about collaboration and interpreting the client’s requirements.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Founded in 1926, the Bodelwyddan-based company has built a number of other schemes across North Wales under the Welsh Government’s 21st Century schools programme. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Its non-educational contracts include: the redevelopment of the People’s Market, Wrexham to create a cultural arts hub; the refurbishment of the Rhyl Pavilion and Sky Tower; construction of an iconic RNLI lifeboat station in Llandudno; a new distribution centre at Deeside for Edge Transport; and the Welsh National Sailing Academy in Pwllheli. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Technical challenges for Wynne Construction on Coleg Cambria projects have included installing a curved steel structure to create walling for the University Centre. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In addition, the company has arranged 15 work experience placements for students to practise their trades on the buildings they attend for classes, at the Bersham Road site. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Each site, on average had between six and eight apprentices working across a number of trades, and around 70 per cent of the workforce for the projects were living within 30 miles of site, or in North Wales. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Coleg Cambria chief operating officer & deputy chief executive Steve Jackson said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The partnership with Wynne Construction has been excellent and we are delighted with these fantastic buildings. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We have created an inspirational learning environment to deliver high-quality education and training which will raise aspirations and enable our students to achieve their potential.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
