Contractor appointed for the new Ysgol Carreg Emlyn

Wynne Construction has been appointed as the main contractor to take forward plans to deliver the new school and facilities for Ysgol Carreg Emlyn in Clocaenog. The project is jointly funded by Denbighshire County Council and the Welsh Government, through its 21st Century Schools and Education Capital Programme.

Cllr Huw Hilditch-Roberts, Lead Member for Education, Children and Young People said “I am delighted that work is progressing on this project and we look forward to working collaboratively with Wynne Construction and the school community. Both Denbighshire and the Welsh Government are continuing to invest in delivering first-class learning environments for the children and young people of Denbighshire. The capital programme has seen huge investment which will enable a better education environment for our children.”

Chris Wynne, Managing Director, Wynne Construction said: “We’re delighted to be, once again, working with Denbighshire County Council on this project.  Our proven experience in this field equips us to deliver the scheme to a high standard and will undoubtedly provide a welcome boost to the local economy through securing existing jobs with our local-based supply chain. 

We look forward to working in partnership with the key stakeholders to maximise benefits for the community."

Karen Brady, Chair of Governors at Ysgol Carreg Emlyn said:

“The children, staff and governors welcome the announcement that Wynne Construction have been appointed to deliver the new school building for Ysgol Carreg Emlyn.

We look forward to working closely with Wynne Construction toward the future benefit of local children and the bringing together of rural Welsh communities.”

Wynne Construction will develop the final technical design and construct the new building which has been designed following consultation with the school community over several months. It is anticipated that the building will be completed by autumn 2018.
