Truro-based CAD Architects has been appointed to work on a £100 million development project in north Wales.
The ambitious scheme to transform Holyhead waterfront is one of the biggest projects of its kind in Wales and opens for public consultation this week.
CAD Architects was appointed by the company leading the project, Conygar Holyhead Limited, after it viewed the successful waterfront development projects that CAD has carried out in Falmouth.
CAD Architects’ MD, Mark Dawes, said: “This is fantastic news for our business, building our presence on the national stage and bringing financial benefit back to Cornwall.
“It recognises the excellent portfolio of work we have already carried out, both in Cornwall and around the rest of the country. The proposed Holyhead Waterfront Redevelopment Scheme is comprehensive in its scope. It will incorporate a new 250-berth marina, amphitheatre, promenade and gardens, together with over 250 new homes. There are also two iconic 19th century listed buildings, which will be sympathetically restored and converted into apartments.
“Our vision is to transform Holyhead waterfront into a vibrant place to live, work and play, whilst preserving its unique character and protecting the existing setting. CAD Architects has over 20 years’ experience of working with developers on large scale developments that work in harmony with the local environment. Our team is looking forward to help bring the Holyhead Waterfront Redevelopment Scheme to life.”
After a period of public consultation this month, the final scheme will be presented to Ynys Mon Council for planning approval in April. It is expected that construction work will create 700 new jobs.
