The project is to deliver an Extra Care Facility in Holywell for Registered Housing Provider, Wales & West Housing. The building will comprise of 55 apartments with communal facilities and garden areas, to create an end to end solution to supported, independent living.
Work commenced on the former Ysgol Perth-Terfyn site in July 2018, this project will see a huge uplift to the local economy for the duration on site and thereafter. The plans for the build consist of a 4-storey structure, encompassing 43 one-bedroom and 12 two-bedroomed apartments. The Holywell Extra Care Development will provide 24 hour support for its residents, including dementia care. To be managed by Registered Housing provider Wales & West Housing.
During the early stages of construction, our commitment to sustainable building has seen mobile machines brought on to site to crush the brick, hardcore and concrete from the old school so it can be recycled on-site to produce high quality aggregate and ensure a sustainable use of these waste materials.
This is the second extra care housing development in Flintshire for Anwyl and Wales & West Housing. The Project is now nearing completion, due to handover in January 2020.
The Holywell Extra Care Development has been secured in partnership with Procure Plus. We have a dedicated team working with the community board at Procure Plus to agree and ensure many positive outcomes for the community surrounding the development. Presently, we have recruited 5 new apprentices as part of this partnership.
In addition, the supply chain has been procured locally, providing financial re-investment to Flintshire.
This is another great step forward for our latest extra care scheme in Flintshire. With the Council working in partnership together with Wales & West Housing Association and Anwyl Construction, we are all looking forward to seeing this scheme come to fruition. The new facility in Holywell will provide excellent facilities to make a real difference to residents’ lives.
