Taf Vale Regeneration has won several awards including the Cardiff Property Awards 2021 since completion.

The Llys Cadwyn redevelopment is a mixed-use scheme comprising 10,700sqm of offices, 2,400sqm of community facilities and 400sqm of café restaurant space. The new mixed-use development replaced a 1960s era Taff Vale Shopping Centre which had been derelict for many years. The project was completed in 2020, providing a major facility for 1,000 people using the office space alone.

The project was officially named Llys Cadwyn or Chain Court to represent the strong and proud industrial heritage of Rhondda Cynon Taf. The scheme has rejuvenated the area by reopening the river edge with an attractive riverside promenade, showcasing an impeccably designed space for two new office blocks, a library, council customer contact point, café, community facilities and a new leisure and fitness centre.

We are extremely proud to be apart of this project and were initially appointed by Transport for Wales to carry out the main development. We were later appointed to carry out the BREEAM Pre-Assessment, BREEAM Design Stage Certificate, BREEAM Construction & Post Construction Certificate by DB3 Architecture.
