Hale builds new social housing in Welsh World Heritage site

Hale Construction is proud to have recently completed a substantial social development site in the historic town of Blaenavon, South East Wales.

After two years of work, a new development of 54 homes are ready to be moved into.

The properties which include a range of two, three and four bed houses as well as one and two bedroom flats, were built for client, Melin Housing Association.

With a rich industry history of ironwork, steel-making and coal mining, Blaenavon was named a World Heritage site in 2000.

To ensure that the new homes blended in with the original buildings in the area, Hale used welsh slate, composite windows and natural stonework as materials.

The development is also situated in a fantastic location, boasting views of the countryside and being just brief walk into the town centre.

Chairman Jonathan Hale said:

“This was the first project that Hale has worked on with Melin Housing Association and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a great opportunity to work in such a historic location and build homes that were sympathetic to the local architecture.”
