An award-winning construction firm which worked on the development at Cardigan’s Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi is working on a new primary school for the Aeron Valley. 

Wynne Construction is continuing to consolidate its growth over the coming 12 months as it begins work on site for a series of major developments across Wales. 

One major project the company is due to progress in 2023 is an approximate £13m design and build of the new Felinfach school for Ceredigion County Council. 

And in other new developments in the region, the company looks to finalise a number of sites across south west Wales, including the expansion of Ysgol Gyfun Aberaeron. 

Managing director of Wynne Construction Chris Wynne said: “It looks to be a promising one for Wynne Construction, especially as it’s been a particularly challenging time for the entire industry, which thankfully looks to now be stabilising. 

“Winning major contracts and the resulting staff growth speak volumes to the level of passion and commitment shown by all members of the team, and I cannot thank them enough for their commitment and high quality of work delivered on all projects.” 

Wynne Construction will also be continuing work on the £18m new build of Newtown’s Ysgol Cedewain, which will see a modern two-storey building which includes a hydrotherapy pool, sensory and physiotherapy rooms, and a community café built. 

The increase in contracts has seen the company continue to expand and develop its staff, with the firm adding 16 new employees to its design, social value, and onsite teams over the last 12 months. 

Chris added: “With a strong pipeline of work ahead of us this year across Wales, we are looking forward to working with the communities around our builds, as well as developing further ties with the vital local supply chains which we source for our schemes where possible. 

“Through the Wynne Futures Foundation, we will also continue our strong commitment to supporting our Welsh-based SME supply chain with a target of over 60% to be spent with Wales.” 

Wynne Construction says it is dedicated to the development of the next generation of the industry, with more than 75 apprentices and work experience placements planned to work on schemes across 2023. 

The company operates throughout Wales and the North West of England, and regularly leads on projects in sectors including education, healthcare, and sport and leisure.
