Consultant cost manager on £6.7m Welsh public-private partnership to support local businesses

Consultant ChandlerKBS has been appointed construction design manager and cost manager on Dragon 24.

The scheme is a public-private partnership between Welsh Assembly Government and RO Developments designed to support indigenous businesses and stimulate investment in targeted regeneration locations.

The current plan is for 10 developments across Wales. Two have already started on site, in Llanelli and Swansea, with ChandlerKBS providing the services for both projects.

Costing a combined value of £6.7m, the offices on the Llanelli site consist of nine self-contained office buildings totalling 26,000ft². The Swansea site is 51,000ft² and will house 16 self-contained office/hi-tech units in two phases at Penllergaer business park.

The development at Llanelli will be one of the first commercial schemes on the regenerated seafront docks.
