Conwy County Borough Council
Length of Contract
Wynne Construction has been awarded the contract to build the new Culture Centre in the town of Conwy. The £3.7m new single storey building will have stunning views towards Conwy Castle and walls, and its green roof will blend into Bodlondeb Park's leafy surroundings. Works commenced on site in May 2018.
The project includes grant funding from HLF; capital funding and sale of buildings from Conwy County Borough Council; funding from the Rural Community Development Fund, and Gwynt y MÔr funding in partnership with the Conwy Arts Trust.
Conwy Culture Centre is a registered site with the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
The Centre is to be constructed to BREEAM Excellent standards. BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building's environmental performance.
A BREEAM assessment uses recognised measures of performance, which are set against established benchmarks, to evaluate a building's specification, design, construction and use. The measures used represent a broad range of categories and criteria from energy to ecology. They include aspects related to energy and water use, the internal environment (health and well-being), pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes.
This project has adopted several approaches to achieving the score of Excellent and to construct a very energy efficient building.
