Hafod Copper Works Site, Swansea.
Swansea Council has secured National Lottery Heritage Funding (NLHF) to re-develop the Grade II Listed Hafod-Morfa Powerhouse, reconfigure 25 % of the existing Rolling Mill (Collection Store) and provide a new build visitor centre and walkway connecting the visitor centre to the rolling mill. In addition, shell and core refurbishment works will also be required to the outbuildings, specifically the Morfa Gates, Porters Lodge and Weighbridge Office following the successful Welsh Government grant award secured by Swansea Council.
The site is owned by Swansea Council and more widely consists of 12.5 acres containing 12 Grade II listed buildings and features. This represents the greatest concentration of physical remains of the copper works that formerly dominated the Lower Swansea Valley and one of the greatest concentrations of industrial archaeology outside Coalbrookdale. The site’s smelting works and other buildings once dominated the Lower Swansea Valley and shaped its development as an industrial town with global connections. Since its closure in 1980 the site fell into dereliction. A previous Cadw Heritage Grant has put in place trails, interpretation and cleared undergrowth as the first phase of a heritage led regeneration of the site. The area is one of the most important sites of the industrial revolution in Britain, a site that exerted a profound influence on the world economy.
Swansea Council along with its appointed design team will be seeking a suitably experienced principal contractor, specifically of Heritage Buildings to undertake the sensitive shell and core restoration and new build elements as a result of the NLHF and Welsh Government funding.
The end tenant of the Powerhouse Re-development scheme, Penderyn Whisky will be leading the internal fit out works to deliver an operational distillery and visitor centre attraction as a separate package of works following completion of the shell and core works.
No end tenant has been identified for the outbuildings buildings at this moment in time, however Swansea Council continues to seek such interest.
Some stabilisation works to other structures not undergoing redevelopment works at this stage in close proximity to the powerhouse building will also be required.
Swansea Council has an appointed multi-disciplinary team to undertake project management, cost management, architectural, mechanical, electrical, and structural services. The MDT will be assisting Swansea Council on the procurement exercise.
