Willmott Dixon wins £18m special needs school deal

Willmott Dixon has won an £18m contract to redevelop Ysgol Y Gogarth special education needs school on its existing site in Llandudno.

The contract to build the 170-pupil school development will see the company create a new library, IT spaces, therapy rooms, hydro-pool, sports hall and vocational teaching areas. 

The cost of the scheme is made up from grant funding provided by Welsh Government and funding from Conwy County Borough Council. 

Anthony Dillon, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the region, said: “We’ll be making sure that local business are used as much as possible under our Local Pound strategy that ensures local people benefit from this substantial investment by Conwy County Borough Council.

“We have built special needs schools across the country and will be applying all that experience here to deliver a superb new school for the region that provides very specialised learning.”

Work starts on site in July and will take place in phases over two years, with Willmott Dixon working with Atkins as architect.
