Willmott Dixon appointed to deliver £38m Pontypridd regeneration scheme

Willmott Dixon has been appointed to deliver a £38 million town centre development project in Pontypridd, Wales.

The Taff Vale redevelopment involves regenerating a former shopping precinct by building two new office blocks, as well as a gateway building incorporating a 21st century library, council customer contact point, cafe, community facilities and new leisure and fitness centre.

The office buildings will feature curtain walling, with the third comprising a distinctive zinc cladding tile system. In addition, the project also includes public realm and highway work, as well as basement parking and bike stands.

With enabling works beginning earlier this year, work is scheduled to start on the construction of the new buildings.

Neal Stephens, Managing Director of Willmott Dixon in Wales and the West, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed for this flagship project for Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council as this will be a catalyst to further revitalise the strategically important town of Pontypridd. Together we’ll create an exciting new chapter for Pontypridd’s future. We will also support the Council’s vision to inject new prosperity into the region by using local businesses whenever possible during the build programme; we want to leave a lasting legacy that we will all be proud of.”

Cllr Robert Bevan said: “This project is a catalyst for the continuingly successful regeneration of Pontypridd and once complete will help to drive further regeneration across the entire region. Pontypridd and the wider area is a key strategic location in the Cardiff Capital Region City Deal and this flagship project highlights our ambitions as a Council to spread prosperity, create jobs and regenerate all areas of our County Borough.”
