Due to time constraints from the urgent requirement of this facility it was not possible to undertake a tendering exercise and so two contractors from the South West Wales Regional Contractor’s Framework 2020 (SWWRCF 2020) were approached to confirm capacity to carry out the works. Swansea Council are the Principal Contractor and both Kier Construction Ltd and T Richard Jones (Betws) Ltd are both sub-contractors.

The full costs associated by this contract will be reimbursed by The Swansea Bay University Health Board.
