Wynne Construction was appointed by Anglesey County Council to build the new Ysgol Y Bont Special Education Needs School in Llangefni. The £8.5m project involved the relocation of the existing co-educational special school from its current site located on the Bryn Cefni Industrial Estate to the Ysgol Gyfun High School campus in Llangefni.

Ysgol y Bont is a co-educational day special school, specialising in the care and education of students between the ages of 3 and 19 years. The new two storey, eco-friendly school will provide modern learning facilities including new classrooms, multi-purpose hall, hydrotheraphy pool and sensory rooms. The project also includes a number of highway access improvements benefitting both Plas Arthur Leisure Centre and Ysgol Gyfun.

The school is 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, including: photovoltaic panels, BIOMASS heating systems, solar hot water, low water demand sanitary installations and sedum green roofing system.
