“Y Storfa will redevelop the former BHS and Miss Selfridge stores in Swansea into a new community hub for Swansea Council’s front-line services in addition to providing a new base for the West Glamorgan Archive Service and a range of other services.

The project started on site in October 2023, with the soft strip works now complete. It is a pleasure to be involved in this project – Y Storfa will provide much-needed council services right into the heart of the city centre and help to regenerate the city”.
– Chris Von Tersch

Project Highlights:

  • The project highlight was getting the main contractor Kier started on site. The pre-construction phase of detailed design to ensure the archive and associated fire engineering was right, took significant time, so to get the project started and onto site was a key milestone!
