Heritage construction in Wales

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work in partnership with Tree and Sons Ltd., Just Lime Ltd., Andrew Scott Ltd and the Welsh Traditional Buildings on the development and delivery of the Heritage Construction in Wales (HECW). We are very grateful to both CITB and Cadw for providing funding and support.

HECW arose following many years of planting seeds; the skills gap within the heritage construction industry has long been recognised. Under the skilful management of Ruth Rees and the support of all partners, the scheme blossomed- offering heritage training opportunities throughout Wales and at all skill levels. The Covid-19 crisis has resulted in the premature pruning of the project. The strong roots that have been developed over the past 2 years will hopefully support new growth soon. Watch this space!!
