JG Hales Construction bags two major projects

The Neath-based construction company is accelerating its growth plans after securing significant wins in both the luxury and social housing markets this year.

In February, the company signed on the second phase of a project in Caldicot, Monmouthshire.

Working in conjunction with Monmouthshire Housing Association, the £7 million project will see Hale replace 1960s flats with modern, environmentally sustainable dwellings.

The development includes 21 homes consisting of two-bed houses, three-bed houses, one-bed flats and two-bed bungalows.

Following this win, in March this year Hale went on to secure a contract with Neath Port Talbot Council to build 150 new homes and retail space on Aberavon seafront.

The appointment marks a significant turning point in the development of the area, which has had a series of investments over the last decade, including new play areas, cafes and a new £13.4 million leisure centre.

The Hale contract will bring the largest new housing development to the seaside spot. It follows a successful small-scale housing development – also developed by Hale in Aberavon in 2016 - of 13 two-bed and three-bed homes, many with sea views.

Nearly all the homes were sold off spec, and interest is again strong in the forthcoming homes.

Speaking about the two significant contracts, managing director of JG Hale Group, David Harrhy, said: “Being a local company, playing a major part in the regeneration of Aberavon is very important to us.

“The JG Hale Group is fully committed to contributing towards what will undoubtedly be a highly successful redevelopment programme.

“We’re equally excited to be working on the second phase of our project with Monmouthshire Housing Association.

“With the end users in mind, the dwellings are to be constructed utilising quality materials from sustainable sources, which will result in a development that all will be proud of.

“We are also focused on offering employment opportunities and supporting the local economy in Monmouthshire.”

JG Hale Construction was established in 1996 and is set to becoming one of the largest construction companies in Wales.

In 2017 the wider company, Hale Group, forecasted a turnover of £30 million, a figure which is set to increase by 15% year on year.
