West Wales construction firms and tradespeople can find out about opportunities to work with expanding Cardiff-based partnership homes specialist Lovell at a free networking event on Monday, 29 April.
Lovell – which builds, refurbishes, regenerates and maintains homes and communities across the region – is inviting local contractors to the Meet the Buyerevent taking place from 10am to 2pm at The Towers Hotel & Spa, near Swansea (M4, J42).The company, which has offices in Tongwynlais, wants to hear from contractors covering the West Wales region from Swansea to Fishguard, including Mid Wales.
Lovell regional managing director James Duffett explains: “Our continuing growth across the region has led to an ever-increasing number of exciting projects. We are very interested in meeting supply chain partners with the relevant experience and expertise to work with us on high-quality new homes schemes.” In South Wales and the South West, the company’s regional forward order book to 2021 exceeds £200 million with developments planned throughout the region.
“The Meet the Buyerevent is an excellent opportunity to get to know our team and our approach to partnership working,” says James Duffett. “We are always keen to hear from people with the right skills who want to work with us. As a business, we are a firm believer in creating benefits for local people and businesses in the areas where we operate. Providing the chance for local firms and individuals to work with us on our award-winning schemes is a big part of that community commitment.”
Major schemes currently include landmark west Cardiff development The Mill, a new urban village creating 800 open market sale and affordable homes. The development has been honoured with a string of awards, including NHBC Pride in the Job, and Best First Time Buyer Family Hometitle at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards. Lovell has also started construction on Ymyl Yr Afon, a £25 million, 153-home development at the former site of the Merthyr Vale Colliery near Merthyr Tydfil, and has the benefit of a strong upcoming pipeline of developments in West Wales.
