Contractor Update

Lloyd & Gravell Ltd started working on the construction site set up for the new school at the Ysgol y Castell site in March, 2020.   The original programme for the construction of the new school and demolition of the existing buildings was split into 2 phases. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic works were suspended on site at the end of April 2020 and remobilised in August 2020.  

Works are currently being undertaken in respect of the external cladding, mechanical, electrical, fire sprinkler and ventilation elements of the project.  The two air tests completed to date have recorded excellent results to meet the Passivhaus Certification requirements for the school.  The information provided for the BREEAM Excellent rating currently stands in excess of the level required.
