WRW were pleased to get the opportunity to showcase the award winning Ysgol Ffwrnes at the CEW Award Winners Reception.
As the winner of the Sustainability Award - Our Legacy 2015, WRW were invited to a Winners Reception at the Senedd hosted by Jane Hutt AM, Minister for Finance & Government Business. The joint event with ICE Wales and CECA Wales was an opportunity for award winners to showcase the best of our industry to as wide an audience as possible.
Ysgol Ffwrnes is on track to achieve BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating, making it the first Primary School in Wales to achieve the standard and one of only three in the UK. Ysgol Ffwrnes was also praised for its project management and the local benefits delivered to the community in terms of local employment and supporting apprentices and trainees within the industry.
Assembly Member and Chairwoman of the Welsh Assembly's cross-party group for the construction industry, Joyce Watson, congratulated the project saying: "With its world-class, environmentally friendly features and inspiring indoor and outdoor spaces, Ysgol Ffwrnes is a model school and an outstanding construction project."
The event was well attended with around 140 people and a great opportunity for WRW to showcase the multi-award winning Ysgol Ffwrnes and celebrate our success from the CEW Awards 2015.
Key speakers at the event included Milica Kitson Chief Executive of CEW, Dave Rowlands Chair of ICE Cymru, Jane Hutt AM Minister for Finance and Government Business and Rhodri-Gwynn Jones Director and Secretary of CECA Wales.
