McCann and Partners are pleased to have provided MEP Design and BREEAM services for the brand new Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) in Treforest, which celebrated completion this October.

The £27M project began construction in December 2018  and is one of the biggest office schemes to be developed in the South Wales Valleys to date.  A new 133,000 sq.ft. regional hub for the DWP at Treforest was successfully handed over on the 19th October by lead contracter BECT.  The office building will house 1,700 staff from offices in and around South East Wales.


On completing the project Andrew Monington, Commercial Manager at BECT said: "The team at BECT Building Contractors are proud to hand over to our valued client this prestigious office scheme, on time and to the highest quality.  The project did have its fair share of challenges, but the collaborative approach adopted by our design team and supply chain partners meant there was no compromise on the end result.  Our hope that is that this building will help boost the further development of the Treforest area."


McCann and Partners' Rhys Silcox added: "We are absolutely delighted to see the DWP Treforest Office development achieve practical completion. It’s a testament to BECT Building Contractors and their sub-contractors given the current global situation, as well as the challenges that were overcome due to the flooding from Storm Dennis in February.


"We are thrilled to have provided the MEP Design and BREEAM services for this fantastic development, that will bring 1700 DWP staff to the South Wales Valleys."


McCann and Partners are delighted to have collaborated with an expert team, including Rightacres Property Company Ltd, BECT, C W Architects, Bingham Hall, CMB and Evans Electrical.
