After unhappy experiences with other architects I found Matthew Jones very good. In particular I found them practical and down to earth and most importantly they listened to my requirements and successfully incorporated them into the design rather than telling me what to have. I’d be more than happy to recommend them to anyone needing an architect. Ian Roe

A new chapter for former local library building

Matthew Jones Architects have recently unveiled exciting plans for the former library building in Llandudno Junction, which was sold recently to a local business couple in auction. Steve and Cheryl Winmill, who run a renewable business, have submitted plans to convert the redundant building in to a coffee shop. The building, which closed a few years ago, has started to fall in to a state of disrepair and serving no community benefit whatsoever. These new plans will offer the local and wider community a hub to enjoy beverages and light snacks in a modern, up to date environment. The building, built in the 1960’s, will undergo a full and comprehensive refurbishment to modernise it and bring it up to today’s building regulations standards. It will have full disabled access, WiFi, and crèche area and an external sitting area. The plans which have just been submitted to Conwy planning department will be considered over the next weeks. Matthew Jones, Director of MJA comments “this is an exciting opportunity to bring this local building back to life as it offers no visual benefit in its current state of disrepair. Our clients should be commended for investing back in to the community and giving this a building a new sustainable use for the foreseeable... read more

Plans to redevelop former Bangor Post Office on Deniol Road

Matthew Jones Architects have recently been commissioned as architects for the redevelopment of the former Bangor Post Office. The listed building which houses the Embassy nightclub on Deiniol Road, Bangor, closed last year and the building currently lies empty. The grade two listed structure originally operated as a post office but plans have now been submitted to convert the building into a mixed use building to include 29 student flats on the upper floors and a cafe/restaurant on the ground floor.  Plans for the city centre site have been drawn up and submitted for planning. Matt Jones, Director from Matthew Jones Architects said: “a building of this age and type without a ‘sustainable beneficial use’ would quickly deteriorate and be under threat” If the plans are given the go-ahead, the single-storey buildings at the back of the building will be demolished to make way for a new five-storey contemporary building providing further 151 student flats, set around a private courtyard, creating a total of 180 flats. Mr Jones said: “Our exciting proposals for the redevelopment of the old post office will introduce an appropriate beneficial use which will ensure its survival for the foreseeable future. “Our proposals will fully renovate this important listed building ensuring its continued positive impact within Bangor. “The proposal is a well thought out scheme that integrates a new build suitable building alongside the listed building, that has been sensitively designed for the site and its context. “The proposals will provide much needed sustainable use in the form of high quality student accommodation in a suitable and sustainable location adjacent the university campus in commercial area of the city... read more

Do you know your responsibilities for managing Health and Safety on your project?

Most people and organisations who contract builders or architects are not experts when it comes to construction regulations. Yet recent changes to the law place legal demands on you in relation to health and safety requirements. The revised Construction (Design and Management) Regulations came into force on 6 April 2015.The key changes you as the client to be aware of are: A construction phase plan will be required for all projects. If there is more than one contractor on site, the client MUST appoint a principal contractor and/or principal designer, as well as keep a health and safety file. Construction phase co-ordination duties will remain with the Principal Contractor, but responsibility for the planning, managing, monitoring and coordination of pre-construction phase health and safety, will now go to a Principal Designer instead of a CDM Coordinator. The client must notify the HSE (F10 notification) if a project runs for 30 days or more, AND has more than 20 persons on site, OR exceeds 500 person days. For a quick overview of what these changes will mean for you and your project, take a look at this simple infographic or a short video from the CITB. We fully understand the new regulations and the responsibilities on all those involved in a project. If you need guidance on appointing a principal designer to manage pre-construction phase health and safety of your project, give us a call today. A downloadable guide to the CDM regulations can be found on the Health and Safety Executive... read more
