Many companies have been involved in the most recent developments at Nant Gwrtheyrn:
Three architectural firms were invited to present their ideas back in 2006, and James, Jenkins, Thomas
of Aberystwyth were appointed to take forward the planning and design of the redevelopment of the listed buildings and the new extensions.
Following a competitive tendering process, R.L. Davies
, a Colwyn Bay family run business were appointed as the main building contractors.
are a company based in Farndon, Cheshire, and were appointed to work on the delivery of heritage interpretation as part of the refurbishment and development project. Headland produced the Activity and Interpretation Plans to support the successful HLF bid.
In the past, taking the road down to the Nant could be a hair-raising experience – with nowhere for two cars to pass each other. Capita Symonds
were appointed by the Nant Gwrtheyrn Trust to secure planning permission and to design and supervise the major improvements to the private access road leading down to the centre. Capita Symonds’ North Wales office designed and managed improvements to the road by Jones Bros
of Ruthin (who co-incidentally built the previous access road in 1978). The new road, now suitable for coaches and large lorries was formally opened by Ieuan Wyn Jones, Welsh Assembly Government’s Deputy First Minister in March 2008.
The final tarmac surfacing work was carried out by Jones-Bros in November 2010 so the road access to reach and leave the Nant is much easier now and less daunting for any car or bus.
