We were the only contractor appointed to deliver the Bangor and Caernarfon Public Realm Improvements Framework contract with Gwynedd County Council, which ran for four years and involved public realm improvements in Bangor City Centre and Caernarfon Town Centre.
Over the course of the framework we were awarded six projects:
All of the above schemes involved a variety of public realm works including; excavation of existing pavements and replacing with various types of natural stone and concrete paving; installation of slot draining channels; hard and soft landscaping; installation of street furniture; street lighting and carriageway reconstruction.
As a result of the city centre environment, the majority of these works involved phasing work to ensure access was maintained at all times to the shops and businesses which needed to continue trading throughout the programmes of work. We offered assistance to businesses for deliveries affected directly by the working area, and incorporated businesses requirements into our traffic management plans as appropriate. We also programmed out of hours working to pave in front of shop fronts to minimise inconvenience.
