The Little Bryn Gwyn  complex is an ambitious project showcasing the potential of so-called ‘hard to reach’ and vulnerable adults quite literally building their own community training facilities. The site features a reciprocal-roofed, round timber training centre, a cutting edge residential facility and a fully equipped woodworking barn.

 

Little Bryn Gwyn

This project is genuinely life changing – and you can see that in these videos with the participants.

The method

Constructed to BREEAM “Excellent” rating, this facility is being built almost exclusively with natural and locally sourced materials. Traditional materials such as Welsh larch, Welsh slate, Welsh wool, straw bales meet cutting edge technologies like wood fibre insulation. This is why we’ve recently been awarded ‘Most Sustainable Venue’ in Wales.

The people

Our buildings are constructed through accredited training for adults and young people from homeless, drug and alcohol, mental health, asylum seeker, physical disabilities and many other vulnerable groups.
