Hunt starts for construction specialist to help transform copperworks

A top class business is being sought to undertake construction work pivotal to the rebirth of a former south Wales industrial heartland.


The company that succeeds in the Europe-wide competitive tender process will transform a key area of Swansea's former Hafod Morfa Copperworks site.

They will make the area, including the historic Powerhouse building, ready for Wales's Penderyn Distillery to expand there and to fit it out as a new distillery and visitor centre.

Listed building consent and planning approval are in place and the council secured a £3.75m National Lottery Heritage Fund grant for the work, with additional works to other historical buildings in the vicinity funded by Welsh Government Targeted Regeneration Investment funding.

Construction work is expected to take place from the end of this year and through 2020 and 2021, with Penderyn planning to open there in 2022.
