Cwmtawe, Pontardawe, Swansea

Phase 1of the scheme consists of 25 semi-detached houses and bungalows on the site of the former Pontardawe Comprehensive School for Pennant Housing.

Construction is a mixture of Timber Frame and Traditional Construction designed for the private market.

The homes were sold as affordable properties overlooking the Swansea Valley.

All properties were designed and constructed to code level 3+ using gas savers, low air seepage and MVHR to assist in achieving the code

High quality finishes were supplied to enhance these desirable properties

Points of Interest
An extremely difficult development with the ground falling from the rear of the site dropping over twenty meters to the front.

Due to the steep gradients and rain water runoff from adjoining land large soakaways were required to control storm water drainage.
