Willmott Dixon to deliver £38m regeneration project in Pontypridd

Willmott Dixon has been appointed to deliver a £38m commercial scheme in Pontypridd, south Wales, by Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council.

The Taff Vale redevelopment comprises two new office blocks, a gateway building incorporating a library, a council customer contact point, café, community facilities and a new leisure and fitness centre.

The development will regenerate a former shopping precinct, which will provide 14,693m2 of office space for over 1,000 people.

Enabling works started earlier this year, with Willmott Dixon set to commence construction of the new buildings.

This marks the latest scheme for Willmott Dixon delivered under the South and Mid Wales Construction (SEWSCAP) framework.

“We are delighted to have been appointed for this flagship project for Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council as this will be a catalyst to further revitalise the strategically important town of Pontypridd,” said Neal Stephens, managing director at Willmott Dixon in Wales and the West.

“Together we’ll create an exciting new chapter for Pontypridd’s future.

“We will also support the council’s vision to inject new prosperity into the region by using local businesses whenever possible during the build programme; we want to leave a lasting legacy that we will all be proud of.”

Councillor Robert Bevan, Rhondda Cynon Taf cabinet member for enterprise, development and housing, added: “This project is a catalyst for the continuingly successful regeneration of Pontypridd and once complete will help to drive further regeneration across the entire region.

“Pontypridd and the wider area is a key strategic location in the Cardiff capital region city deal and this flagship project highlights our ambitions as a council to spread prosperity, create jobs and regenerate all areas of our county borough.”
