A 2-stage, £5.3m Design and Build Project for the refurbishment and extension of an existing 4-storey 1960’s office block. The completed project provides modern facilities for various local authority and wellbeing services within a town centre, accessible setting – promoting town centre rejuvenation and investment.

The Crown Building project stands out from the crowd in Wrexham Council’s dedication to their Net Zero ambition – transforming an outdated and inefficient 1960’s facility into a modern office by focusing on a fabric first refurbishment that reduces energy demand & waste while maximising the supply of renewable energy.

Crown Buildings focusses on environmental sustainability delivering major reductions in carbon emissions, and extension of an existing built assets lifespan by 50+ years – saving embodied carbon, future raw material extraction and opex.

The project was a finalist in the Net Zero Constructing Excellence in Wales award and is the all Wales LABC winner in the Best Public / Community Building category.
