Information


Anwyl delivered the contract to construct the new Training and Innovation Academy in Wrexham for well known manufacturer; Village Bakery. The construction consisted of steel frames on pad foundations with composite upper floors to develop the 4 storey building.

The four storey training centre owns a number of innovative systems and modern facilities, fit for the purpose of motivating and driving the client’s employees. These include: A gym, rooftop terrace, lecture lounge and theatre, restaurant, product development labs, quiet rooms, training suites, various offices, conference rooms and ground floor distribution and dispatch.

The development was designed for sustainability in line with key client, Marks & Spencer’s Plan A principles. The development owns the first of it’s kind and the largest living wall of evergreen plants in Wales.

It was important to both Anwyl Construction and Village Bakery that a number of Apprentice opportunities were made available to the local community during the build. Anwyl worked closely with their Supply Chain, the CITB and Construction Skills to ensure a total of 11 young apprentices had an opportunity of working on the development, which further reflected the main aim of the scheme to help increase employability and skills.

All Subcontractors and Suppliers for the project were employed from within North Wales, including those apprentices that worked on the Development. In turn this has meant for a large increase of local economic impact.
