Demolition, Building and Structures

Winsel Recycling Centre

Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire

Client: Pembrokeshire County Council through framework agreement tender
Contract Value: £425k

This project was procured as a turn-key design & build contract, for the construction of a 750m² floor area steel framed building with office facilities. The local council sought a new building to lease out as an extension of an existing civic amenity site.

Overall it was extremely involved work from an office perspective in terms of co-ordination and management of all the project team, made all the more challenging due to strict programme requirements. This was due to a pre-arranged agreement to lease out the building at a particular date, meaning a guaranteed completion date was essential.

There was a whole spectrum of different elements of works required for the scheme:

  • M&E works against specified employer’s requirements;
  • Steel frame building/composite cladding/Roller shutter doors;
  • Masonry works;
  • External works- earthworks/structural concrete and foundations/tarmac works/foul and surface water drainage/interceptor & cess pool/palisade fencing;
  • Internal works- stud work/dry lining & decoration/toilet & shower installations/kitchen/suspended ceiling/safety flooring/doors & windows;
  • O&M manual upon completion

As regards the Winsel project, we are very happy with the partnering ethos that Evan Pritchard Contractors operated with. This along with a pro-active attitude to solving problems has made the project a success and only strengthened our relationship.

Spittal Cross Farm Robotic Milking Parlour

Spittal, Pembrokeshire

Client: Spittal Cross Farm
Contract Value: £1.3m

Main scheme objectives involved creating a new Industrial scale milking facility to be operational 24 hours a day. This included large scale groundworks, design & build of a structural steel building with associated major concrete structure slurry pit, co-ordination and installation of a robotic rotary milking parlour and large scale concrete floor and road laying.

The project was completed on time in order to meet strict funding guidelines stipulated by the client.

Effluent Treatment Works Construction

Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire

Client: CAP Technologies through tender
Contract Value: £700k

A solution was required to deal with effluent waste created from dairy production at the First Milk factory in Merlin’s Bridge, Haverfordwest. A specialist design team were appointed to seek a suitable contractor through a quality/price tender submission, which we won through competitive tender.

The site chosen for the works was on the existing factory grounds, however required extensive earthworks to provide a level site with suitable access. We were able to offer a project programme which reduced the envisaged duration on site, whilst still meeting the demands of the design.

Following earthworks, large reinforced concrete foundations were constructed in preparation for the installation of a series of pre-cast concrete sections to form 2 large storage vessels. In addition to the vessels, access roads and a new build control room were constructed as part of the works.

Twr Y Felin Reception Extension

St David’s Pembrokeshire

Client: Retreats Group
Contract Value: £330,000

Having undertaken minor works for the Retreats Group in the past, we were very happy to be appointed to construct a reception extension for them as repeat business at their Twr y Felin hotel.

As an award winning local hotel known for exceptional quality and high standards, the quality of work produced was the key element of the project brief. Material specification and workmanship had to be of exceptional standards in order to be accepted.

The client was delighted with the finished project, and we received praise for our attitude and willingness to work to required high standards.

Thank you all for everything that you have helped us with, for being so professional, patient and flexible to work around our guests needs. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you all and we hope we will have the opportunity to work with you again sometime in the future.

Salt Barn

Pont Abraham, Carmarthenshire

Client: Tarmac Contracting through SWTRA framework agreement
Contract Value: £700k

This project was for the South Wales Trunk Road Agency (SWTRA) through Tarmac Contracting as part of the civil engineering framework agreement. An existing depot at Pont Abraham was chosen as a central site to construct a new salt barn for distribution over the West Wales trunk road network.

The site was challenging in terms of ground conditions, meaning meeting crucial design criteria was essential. The structure was a new build sited near existing buildings, and piled foundations were required due to the ground conditions. Deep drainage and well point de-watering were also main factors in the groundworks stage.

A steel framed structure was erected and clad using metal profiled sheeting. Electrical services were required for the building in addition to improvements to access and the surrounding landscape.
