The scheme is the conversion of an old 1960's concrete local authority building, with external outbuildings also converted. The properties have been brought up to Code Level 3 with installation of external EWI render systems and photovoltaic panels. Two properties on the ground floor have also been turned into flats suitable for purchasers with disabilities. The scheme demonstrates R&M Williams ability to operate on both conversion and brownfield development opportunities

The works comprised of demolition of existing premises, ground works and masonry superstructure, face brickwork and external rendering, internal finishes including services and fixtures and fittings as well as external landscaping including access roads and new service connections.

At this £2.7mill scheme in Penally, we have taken over a Brown field site for redevelopment where we demolished the existing public house to form a footprint for development of flats and low rise house. Phase one provided 6 apartments over 3 storeys and two low rise properties and phase 2 saw the creation of a further two low rise and a second block of  6 properties. The Client for the Development is our Holdings Company, R&M Wiilliams (Holdings) Ltd. and whilst this was an in house development, the land acquisition and contract were formalised through the Holding Company and RMW provided a fixed lump sum price for the development under a Design & Build contract. 


Tesco Express

A new £1m Tesco Express Store, with 3 flats and an office above. The works included demolition of existing shops and restaurant within a confined seaside residential area. We also carried out reduced level excavation to form undercroft new structural steel work frame and masonry infill panels. The ground floor was constructed to shell and core then handed to Tesco to fit out as Tesco Express Store. The first and second floor single and double living accommodation was promoted by the development to social housing landlords. The roof works incorporated both flat and slate roofing and internal finishes were developed to a basic standard thus allowing future landlord flexibility of layout and design. The works also incorporated the installation of a new substantial access road to adaptable standard and off road parking.

During these works, R&M Williams staff put together a times capsule which was buried under the last section of foundations.

Testimonial from Nick Willis, Willis & Hole Architects:

“R & M Williams undertook the works on a confined site, often in bad weather in a professional manner with due regard to health and safety for both site workers and the public.”

This project consists of 30 units of social rented and intermediate rent properties. The development is a mixture of 2 and 3 storey houses constructed using timber frame construction achieving CFSH level 3+ The external skin of the building is a mixture of local stone and render approved by the Brecon beacons national parks.

Due to the fact there is no natural gas in the area we have used air source heat pumps to provide the heating to the properties. The storm water for the site is dealt with using soak ways and permeable paving as is the adopted highway into the site.
