North Wales builder starts work on £8.5 million extra-care complex

An award-winning North Wales construction company has started work on a major £8.5 million project to create an extra-care complex in Mold.

Llys Jasmin, a 61-property extra care development for Wales & West Housing Association, is being built by Rhyl-based Anwyl Construction.

The company took over the project when the Staffordshire-based Linford Group collapsed last year.

Anwyls stepped in to begin work before Christmas and director Tom Anwyl said: “The contract has meant we have been able to take more people on and secure employment going forward.

“It’s about keeping the jobs and making sure we can get local involvement in the construction of what is a major project.”

Anwyls, North Wales’s biggest local housebuilder, have a wealth of experience of major projects and have worked on a series of developments at colleges across North Wales including Glyndwr University, Deeside College, Llandrillo College and Coleg Menai.

The project will see Anwyls build 61 apartments for an extra care and dementia complex as well as two extra care bungalows at Llys Jasmin, Mold.

Anne Hinchey, Chief Executive of Wales & West Housing Association, said: “We are working in partnership with Flintshire County Council to create this fantastic development, which will offer state of the art facilities for older people with care and support needs, as well as those requiring specialist dementia care.

“Llys Jasmine, WWHA’s second extra care scheme, will give residents the opportunity to live independently, albeit within a supported environment where there are dedicated care staff on site 24/7 to look after them.

“It is also very close to the town centre meaning residents will remain very much a part of the wider community.

“We’re delighted that Anwyl Construction are carrying out this build for us. They come with a high reputation for excellence and a wealth of experience of major works like this.”

Tom Anwyl added: “This is a ground breaking project by Wales & West Housing Association which provides a new kind of extra care provision.

“The accommodation at Llys Jasmin is being built to offer independent living with support facilities available to allow residents to adapt to their changing circumstances.

“There will be numerous shared facilities in the development including a community restaurant,
comfortable lounges, multi-function rooms, hairdressing and laundry provision.

“At the heart of the scheme is a sheltered courtyard garden which provides residents with a variety of safe and attractive outdoor spaces to encourage an active lifestyle.

“We are delighted to be working with a partner such as Wales & West and in partnership with architects Ainsley Gommon on such a prestigious project.”

Work on the site is ongoing and is scheduled to be completed by June next year.
