Dawnus Construction - Meet the Contractor Event
LOCAL contractors from Neath Port Talbot have been given the
opportunity to work with a major contractor on a new £7.8m primary
At an event hosted by the authority's Businesses Development
Team, 19 local contractors, including carpenters, cleaners,
bricklayers and landscapers, met with contractors Dawnus
Construction to discuss sub-contracting opportunities during the
building of the new Ysgol Newydd Sandfields Primary School.
Neath Port Talbot Council leader Ali Thomas said the Authority
is committed to supporting local businesses in the county
"I am delighted that the Council has been able to bring the
skills these local businesses have to the attention of Dawnus
Construction," he said.
"The company recognises that there is a highly skilled workforce
in the county borough and they are dedicated to working with the
authority to provide local people with employment opportunities,
now and in the future."
Dawnus Contractors are keen to give businesses a helping hand,
while at the same time strengthen their supply chain during the
building of the new Ysgol Newydd Sandfields School,
which will house pupils from Glan-Y-Mor and Tir Morfa primary
schools as well as the Ty Afan Unit.
The majority of the companies that attended are being considered
for work on the project, whilst all have been added to the
company's database for consideration on future projects.
Russell Evans, Regional Director at Dawnus Construction Ltd
said: "Dawnus is very pleased to be working with the Authority at
Neath Port Talbot on this important scheme, and as a Local
Contractor is absolutely committed to maximising the benefit that
the community and its businesses derive from the scheme."
Work on the new school began in September and is scheduled for
completion in October 2013.
