As we worked on the LABC-Award Winning Penmaenmawr Road Development in Llanfairfechan, we undertook a £30k refurbishment to Llanfairfechan Library in order to improve the existing environment. We were appointed to undertake the building works by Cartrefi Conwy, and made significant improvements to the High Street building on behalf of the Friends of the Llanfairfechan Community Library (FLCL).
Our labour for this project- removing a wall, relocating a computer area to the main facility, as well as creating an airy and light reading area- was provided at no charge.
The library also benefited from the installation of energy efficient double glazed windows, and a complete overhaul of the kitchen and bathroom areas.
We believe that community spaces are so important, and that public facilities like Llanfairfechan Library are real assets to the community. Our director, Mark Parry, said this about our work at Llanfairfechan:
“From the opening celebrations alone it is clear how well loved this amenity is. We were extremely glad to donate our labour free of charge to help get it into ship shape. We had the labour on hand, the design and building skills, and the supply chain needed to complete the work quickly and efficiently, saving the library committee over £10,000. Now The Friends of Llanfairfechan Community Library can concentrate all their fundraising drives on the future running and maintaining of this lovely feel-good library.”
