LLANDUDNO’s lifeboat station has won a prestigious building award.

It was declared the best small commercial project in Conwy county; and was also the overall 2018 North Wales winner, in the North Wales local authority building control awards.

Abergele based Wynne Construction built the station for the inshore and all weather lifeboats, including a new rock revetment and launch ramp.

The competition judges said: “The location was a difficult build for the contractor due to an extremely challenging and exposed environment next to the sea.

“The contractor worked well with the local authority building control team and good lines of communication were set up for regular site inspections.

“The contractor has been a regular to our awards in the past and continues to produce a high standard of build.”

Marcus Elliott, Llandudno lifeboat operations manager said: “All of the volunteers at the lifeboat station are extremely pleased with the new boathouse. After many years of waiting, the new building is fulfilling its promise to be a fine home for our new Shannon class lifeboat and has finally placed us where we need to be which is at the beach. We are happy that Wynnes have received this much deserved award.”
