Building excellence awards highly commends Llys Yr Orsaf in Barry

We’re pleased to announce that our Llys Yr Orsaf development in Barry has been highly commended in the Best Social Housing category in the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Building Excellence awards which were announced on 1 February.

Llys Yr Orsaf has provided 21 affordable homes for local people, on the site of the former Barry Cons Club. One resident with mobility issues told us the difference her new home has made to her. Jackie said: “I used to have to walk up 40 steps to get to my old flat which would make me have a hypo but this flat has given me freedom and I can go out by myself.”

Working in partnership with contractors, Morganstone Ltd and C2J Architects and Town Planners, Llys Yr Orsaf was completed in summer 2020 and consists of 15 one-bedroom and six two-bedroom apartments.

Nominations for the awards were made by the council’s Building Control surveyors, who are responsible for the supervision of the projects as they progress on site, through to the completion of the work.

You can view the winners and those highly commended in the Building Excellence Awards brochure here.
