Burry Port Primary School has been recognised as a stand out scheme at the CEW Awards 2016 being shortlisted for 4 categories.
The Constructing Excellence in Wales awards are recognised across the Welsh built environment as the biggest and brightest celebration of best practice in Wales. They are a clear demonstration of the core strength of construction in Wales and the desire and commitment to deliver buildings, roads, bridges, and facilities of all kinds in a collaborative and sustainable manner.
Following on from recent shortlisting success in the Construction News and RIBA Regional Awards, Burry Port has been shortlisted for Sustainability Award - Our Legacy, Value Award, Innovation Award and Project of the Year - Buildings. With over 100 entries received WRW are thrilled with this result and hope to follow in the success story of Ysgol Ffwrnes last year.
Handed over in time for the new school term in September last year, Burry Port's design and construction embraces innovation and reflects Carmarthenshire Council's ongoing commitment to sustainability. Burry Port is the first Primary School in Wales to achieve Passivhaus Certification.
The team will now aim to impress the judging panel with a presentation before the winners are announced at the award ceremony in July. Business Development Director Jon Williams said: "Following last years' success with Ysgol Ffwrnes, it's great that a project by Carmarthenshire County Council and WRW is again recognised by CEW. Being shortlisted for the Sustainability Award which we won last year is a great demonstration of the Council's commitment to sustainability and our commitment to creating sustainable buildings and reducing negative impact on the environments in which we work."
