Information


Hwb Dynbich is a state-of-the-art facility for 16-25 year olds in the Denbigh area. The project offers a youth enterprise facility and provides training, business and employment advice, apprenticeships and social support for youths in Denbigh and surrounding areas. Additionally, there are 6 residential flats within the main building structure.

A large proportion of this project was financially supported by the Big Lottery Fund (amongst other contributors) and serves as a huge asset to its community. In addition to the support and training provided there, the centre is in partnership with Coleg Llandrillo, making their qualifications and courses easily accessible via the centre.

The Structure of the building comprises of a mixture of reinforced concrete foundations, floor slab and a mixture of steel frame and traditional construction. The external walls comprise a mix of pre-oxidised copper façade cladding, aluminium double glazed curtain walling and masonry.  The main roof areas are constructed using an insulated metal roofing system.

Local labour and employment is always high on the agenda for Anwyl Construction, regardless of contract location. In order to establish the skills available locally, a “Meet the Buyer” event was held in Denbigh in conjunction with Business Wales where local subcontractors and suppliers had the opportunity to introduce themselves and discuss the works package requirements. The outcome of this event allowed for 49% of subcontractors appointed form within a 25 mile radius of the site, and 71% situated within 45 miles.

Apprenticeships and training opportunities were also maximised as a result of the build. Through collaboration with subcontractors, Anwyl enabled 10 apprentices to work on the project.
