This has been our first project with Keepmoat and we are delighted to see it nearing completion. The development consists of constructing forty apartments for older and vulnerable people. The building is an all masonry build which also consists of a communal laundry, sensory garden and craft studio. All our apprentices have enjoyed working on this scheme also.
Our work on this site began in December 2015 and we are very proud to see the efficiency of our team on this project. We are using the thin joint method, in conjunction with H&H Celcon, to build the houses. This allows speed, accuracy and a clean, neat finish. This method also allows the roof to be fitted on the plots quicker. As of March 1st 2016, just twelve short weeks beginning the project, seven houses have been covered. This is a huge achievement, especially considering as we have had such a wet January and February.
We are very excited to be involved in such a large development at a time when Cardiff is undergoing a huge facelift. Working with Bouygues UK, our site supervisor Mark Langley and our team of operatives are working together to produce an excellent product. The build is a large undertaking which include flats, town houses and retail units.
SJB are proud to have renewed our sponsorship of Treorchy Rugby Club for another three years.
This season’s highlight was to see the mini rugby junior section compete in the Redrow Blues Cup
Final on May 17th in the Cardiff Arms Park. It was a great day and especially great to see local boy,
Macauley Cook, so involved with the club still. Our locality is very important to us and we look
forward to strengthening our ties with the community over the coming years.
One of the most exciting projects we have recently been involved in is the Bellerophon Project. Bellerophon Partnerships Ltd is a unique property development company who have access to funds to finance affordable housing schemes. We were the bricklaying contractors on the pilot scheme which took place in Cwmbach, Aberdare in the Rhondda in conjunction with Rhondda Housing Association. After seeing the finished project in the pilot scheme we then went on to build thirty seven new homes which all reached the Code for Sustainable homes – level 5.
We are currently in negotiations with Leadbitter (Bouygues UK) to work with BPL again on the International Sports Village in Cardiff, which is due to start in the summer of 2015. This will be an extremely high profile project that we are looking forward to be part of.
