Pantycelyn Student Halls of Residence
Client: Morgan Sindall Construction
Works: Alterations, Refurbishment & Extensions
Project value: £1.8M
A high-profile project to restore the historic student hall of residence which first opened in 1951. The hall was home to Prince Charles during his time as a student in Aberystwyth and now provides an important community for Welsh-speaking students.
What we did:
Morgan Sindall Construction appointed LEB Construction as one of its main subcontractors on the £16.5m restoration. We delivered several key packages of work including extensions and alterations, groundworks, roofing, cladding and plastering. The work has created contemporary communal spaces plus en-suite bedrooms, with high-speed internet access for up to 195 students.
What the client says:
“On such a high-profile project on a national asset, we needed a skilled team to work to tight deadlines, deliver high quality work that could adapt to any challenges the projects unearthed. We knew we could trust LEB Construction with the job, and they delivered.”
