Workforce increase for a construction company
A North Wales construction company has expanded its workforce as it prepares to embark on an influx of new projects over the next two years.
Bodelwyddan-based Wynne Construction has welcomed ten new staff members as well as a series of internal promotions as the company continues to win new contracts across Wales.
The company, which will preserve around 6,500 Wales-based construction jobs over the next two years through its £ 85million backlog, has plans worth £ 25million currently underway and is expected to start eight major new projects across Wales and North West England by the end of 2023.
One of the new team members who have been involved in old Wynne Construction projects is Design Director Richard Beatson, who has joined architectural firm Ainsley Gommon.
As a Senior Architectural Technologist, he previously participated in the design of Wynne projects, such as Deeside Sixth Form College in Coleg Cambria and Ysgol Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd in Ruthin.
Deputy site manager Dyfed Edwards also had a previous relationship with Wynne before joining us in April of this year. He participated in a five-day internship on the Ty Pawb Arts Center project in 2017 while studying his BTEC L3 qualification in Construction Management at Coleg Cambria.
Site manager Liam Jones, who is working on the development of Ysgol Brynffordd as part of Wynne’s £ 7.1million work package to expand preschool arrangements in Flintshire, is another new member of the Wynne Construction team, having previously operated a carpentry business alongside his father for 12 years before taking up a position in a timber framing company in Ruthin.
Other new members of Wynne Construction include Quantity Surveyor Tom Hocknell, Site Managers Dewi Adamson and Joe Hackney, Project Manager Huw Davies and Site Officers Chris Kidd, Martin Brookes and Martin Lewis.
Additionally, Wynne also rewarded team members with internal promotions, including one for Assistant Site Manager John Watts, who joined the position after previously working as a skilled carpenter.
Martin Roberts, meanwhile, was promoted to deputy site manager, while Mark Wilson and Andy Lea were promoted to project manager.
Managing Director Chris Wynne said: “Skills enhancement and career development have long been one of our top priorities across the Wynne Futures Foundation, so it is encouraging to see these values come to fruition; further.
“We are excited to strengthen our workforce with new talented individuals who share our passion for delivering cutting edge construction projects to our clients. “
