Completion of Restoration and Conversion of Barry Island Landmark

RPA acting as Employers Agent, Cost Manager, and CDM Coordinator, have just completed the renovation of the former Marine Hotel on behalf of the Newydd Housing Association.Additionally, a number of new build units have been constructed. Now named Ger Y Môr, the development has eight 1 and 2 bed apartments, plus a further twelve 1 bed walk-ups.

The scheme is seen as a real success for the area with a previously derelict building now revitalised, and under full occupation.

Pendragon Design and Build have engaged closely with the local community, including with a number of local Primary schools, whilst also providing a number of apprentice opportunities for the area’s young people.

Coupled with RPA’s recent involvement in the redevelopment of the Barry Island seafront, the Newydd project again illustrates RPA’s ability to help deliver challenging projects in significant and sensitive public areas.
