A CONSTRUCTION firm based in Mochdre, which was building a new housing development in Denbighshire, has gone into voluntary liquidation.

Brenig Construction, which was created in 2012 by Mark Parry and Howard Vaughan, was the principal contractor for Denbighshire County Council’s Llwyn Eirian scheme in Denbigh.

The two managing directors first met as six-year-olds at a youth club in Glan Conwy in 1987.

The high-tech renewable estate of new Denbigh homes, on Henllan Street, will provide 22 low-carbon semi-detached houses available for social rent.

A Denbighshire County Council spokesperson said: “Denbighshire County Council is saddened to learn that Brenig Construction, which has been the principal contractor for the council’s housing development at Llwyn Eirin in Denbigh, has entered voluntary liquidation.

“The council will be working with the liquidator, and seeking alternative arrangements to ensure that the development can be completed at the earliest opportunity.”

In 2018, Brenig Construction moved into new headquarters at Mochdre Business Park, which it built for registered social landlord, Cartrefi Conwy.

Brenig worked with Cartrefi Conwy whom they work together as “Calon Homes” with “Creating Enterprise”, a subsidiary of the housing association.

A Cartrefi Conwy spokesperson said: “We were sorry to learn that Brenig Construction have gone into voluntary liquidation and our thoughts are with all the staff who have been affected.

“It is a real shame because Brenig have clearly been affected by the prevailing economic climate and post-COVID challenges that are particular to the construction sector.

“Although we have worked with them on a number of projects in the past, they are not involved in any of our current or future schemes via Cartrefi Conwy, Creating Enterprise or Calon Homes.”
