Llys Graig Y Wion development shortlisted in CIH Welsh Housing Awards!

Posted on by Gavin Holley

Our former Victorian Graig-Y-Wion School redevelopment which has provided 28 affordable and specially adapted homes has been shortlisted in the final three of the Chartered Institute of Housing Welsh Housing awards.

Following the closure of the school in 2005 after over 100 years in operation, the site was subject to numerous break-ins and arson attacks resulting in the near total destruction of the school and loss of an important piece of history in Pontypridd. The restoration of this ornate stone building has allowed us, in partnership with JEHU Construction to create bespoke housing units unattainable to a traditional new build scheme, with spectacularly large and liveable apartments, flooded with natural light. The development has rescued this local landmark from the edge of the abyss and ultimately secured its future for the next 100 years.
