We were appointed as specialist contractor to apply the EWI system for the project at Oakwood in Maesteg. The project was funded through the Welsh Assembly, Arbed Scheme, Valleys 2 Coast Housing, CESP and CERT.

We were appointed as main contractor to complete the first phase of the properties after the original main contractor employed went into administration.

Although the majority of the works were completed in the worst winter we have seen for a number of years, this contract was completed on time and within budget. The properties received significant works with structural alterations, roofing, heating, windows and doors forming part of the works being completed.
