New photos give a glimpse of Pobl Group’s innovative development in the Treberth area of Newport which has now been completed, creating 45 homes for older people alongside a community hub.
Neath-based construction firm J.G. Hale Construction has completed work on the scheme and handed the apartments over to Pobl Group last week.
The scheme comprises of two apartment blocks, one containing 18 one-bed apartments and the other 27 two-bed apartments. They are linked by a three-storey atrium space, forming an entrance to the residential element.
The community hub building is linked to the main residential block via a second-floor link corridor, passing over one of the drainage easements, allowing pedestrian access from both directions along Treberth Crescent.
The project has made use of a parcel of land left over from the redevelopment of Newport’s 1940s prefab homes more than 20 years ago and utilises a series of sustainable technologies, including PV panels and battery storage, as well as green roofs and climbing walls.
A key factor to J.G Hale Construction’s involvement with the project was the utilisation of the ‘Off Site Manufacture’ (OSM) of their Trisowarm panel system.
A sunroom and a residents’ garden are located on the southerly aspect of the building and will take advantage of views out over the existing parkland towards the 19 Hills area of Ringland.
The project’s external spaces also include a wandering path with rest points and raised planting beds for the residents to grow fruit and vegetables, along with carefully designed planting to the front, softening the overall impact of the development.
