Bridgend’s landmark Rhiw development has created a new 242 space car park, commercial units and a 28 unit new waterside apartment scheme in the town centre. Pick Everard project managed the delivery of the £10 million scheme which has marked a huge milestone in the redevelopment of the South Wales town.
Pick Everard worked closely with the client, Coastal Housing Group, our construction partners and Bridgend County Borough Council to ensure that the scheme was delivered on time. Pick Everard oversaw the demolition of the existing Rhiw multi-storey car park and overhead concrete walkway managing the challenges presented in terms of working on such a tight site with restricted access and in the centre of the town.
The project represents an important investment in the town. The original car park was outdated and in poor condition. The new multi-storey car park was designed to enable an increase in visitor numbers to the town centre and provide a boost to the local economy.
Coastal Housing Group, the affordable home provider for South Wales, was one of the scheme’s investors. Gareth Davies, director at Coastal Housing, said: “This residential provision will go a long way to providing quality, affordable homes enabling more people to relocate to the town centre.
“This is the biggest development that’s happened for a long time in Bridgend and it is a big part of the regeneration plans to transform the town centre. Large scale investments of this nature are instrumental in reviving the local economy and we’re proud to be involved.
“Pick Everard provided us with regular updates throughout and managed the project efficiently, ensuring that work was completed on schedule and to budget. Working together was a really positive experience.”
