Extra Care Residential Housing Unit set to open Summer 2021
The £9m extra care scheme was built in Aberystwyth by main contractors Anwyl Partnerships for Wales and West Housing Association. The building will provide 24 hour on site care and support for those needing more assistance.
Lowfield’s supplied and erected the timber frame kit for the 4 storey 5690m2 project located at Pen yr Angor, Trefechan, with magnificent views over the town and harbour. The project started just as the world was about to enter a global pandemic, this meant communication between contractors and sub-contractors was vital in the success of the project.
The project included 50 one bedroomed apartments and 6 two bedroomed apartments. The kit was made up of 140mm studs with 18mm OBS3 sheathing, with 100mm factory fitted rigid insulation. The party walls were constructed to robust detail to aid both fire and acoustic requirements and floor cassettes were used to speed up the build and reduce the potential falls from heights.
This was one of the largest projects Lowfields has worked on and the end result is extremely impressive sitting overlooking Aberystwyth.
