A Welsh construction company will secure approximately 6,500 Welsh construction jobs as it prepares to start a number of new projects.

Bodelwyddan-based Wynne Construction has secured £ 85 million worth of projects to be delivered over the next two years, with orders showing increasing demand for services beyond pre-COVID levels.

The company’s list of wins include the design and construction of a new Special Needs School (SEN) in Newtown, Powys, valued at $ 22 million.

Eight new major projects are part of the company’s £ 85m order book, which runs until the end of 2023, with £ 25m worth of projects currently underway in Wales and North West England.

This includes a 7 million planning and construction project in Bangor for the Gwynedd Council.

Wynne Construction is also supplying a 5.5 million

Chris Wynne, Managing Director of Wynne Construction said: “It is incredibly encouraging to see a very strong backlog, especially after a difficult year with the coronavirus pandemic and challenges facing the industry.

“The daily hard work and commitment of every employee is recognized with the continued success in winning new contracts and the associated company expansion.

“With £ 85 million worth of work in the pipeline by 2023, we look forward to working with key stakeholders and communities in and around our projects, which stretch from Carmarthenshire to Anglesey and across the border to Cheshire. It is also more positive news for our supply chain, which is sourced locally for each system whenever possible.

In the past three months, Wynne Construction has welcomed nine new employees in addition to investing in facilities, equipment and improving office and site connectivity with improved IT services.

The company, which has more than 50 employees, will build on this investment and further strengthen its workforce with additional new hires in the coming months.

It will also continue its strong commitment to supporting Welsh workers through project spending and supply chain investments.

Future projects will secure jobs in the construction sector, with at least 60 percent of those jobs going to Wales-based SMEs, and support the company’s goal of getting more people into the industry through its Wynne Futures Foundation.

Chris added, “We are committed to serving not just those within the local region, but the industry as a whole.

“Between an increase in projects and our work through the Wynne Futures Foundation, we have been able to give back and support companies that have grown in Wales and protect positions at a time when it is difficult for many.”
