Wynne Construction will carry out a significant redevelopment on a key site situated along Rhyl’s promenade. We have been appointed through the North Wales Construction Partnership (NWCP) framework to construct the Queen’s Buildings in the first phase of a 15-year regeneration project for the town centre.
Works include the development of a new indoor market hall with a versatile event space for live music and exhibitions, as well as an open courtyard to connect to the West Parade seafront. The project is due to begin in early 2022 after demolition has been completed.
Steve Davies, Contracts Manager from Wynne Construction said: “We are thrilled to be playing a role in this key stage of the exciting plans for Rhyl. Some of our team live in and around Rhyl, and they in particular are looking forward to contributing.
“It’s also a fantastic opportunity to continue our offering work experience and placement opportunities, which was a huge success when we delivered the Rhyl Travelodge.”
Future phases of the scheme include new commercial and office spaces as well as new residential apartments overlooking the seafront. The details of these projects are still underway, but construction is expected to begin soon after the first phase has been completed in November next year.
Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, leader of Denbighshire County Council and lead member for the economy, said: “We are pleased to have received planning permission which allows us to press on with the first phase of this significant regeneration project.
“This site is now another step closer to being transformed into a completed key development within Rhyl town centre. The Queen’s Buildings has already provided job opportunities for local residents during the construction phase and will continue to do so when complete, which will benefit the whole of Denbighshire.”
Wynne Construction has delivered projects in Rhyl prior to this development, building the new Travelodge hotel on the town’s seafront in 2018.
