Current Developments

Potters Wheel, Swansea

As part of the ongoing redevelopment of the Kingsway in Swansea, Coastal are partnering with the local council and Welsh Government to to help deliver their green infrastructure objectives and bring the first green walls to Swansea. Thanks to Welsh Governments Transforming Towns Grant and Green Infrastructure Grant.

Green walls (also known as plant walls, living walls or vertical gardens) incorporate nature into urban environments and can benefit the area by improving air quality in the city, improving urban biodiversity and reducing and absorbing noise levels from city centre traffic.

With a contract value of £1m, contractors Intelle Construction, will bring other upgrade works to the building to include visual enhancements to all the external walls, with new windows throughout and new roof coverings.

With works having begun in May 2021, the initial phase will be followed by works to refurbish all internal spaces in the upper floors of the building to accommodate start-up and growing enterprises.

Phase 1 is expected to complete in late 2021.

Gwynfaen - Penyrheol, Swansea
We’ve joined forces with another Swansea housing association, Pobl Group, to build 144 high tech, zero carbon homes in Penyrheol, Swansea.
With final handover is expected in early 2025, these home will be built to very high levels of thermal efficiency and using a combination of solar panels, battery storage and heat recovery to provide residents’ heating and electricity needs, with options available to rent or buy the homes.  The development will also feature a community green and a ‘community hub’ building.
Kelly Thomas, our Executive Director of Development at Coastal, said: “The climate crisis has highlighted how government and industry need to change; funding and delivering zero carbon homes at this scale demonstrates the will that exists amongst Coastal, Pobl and Welsh Government to lead that change within the housing sector.”

Pennard, Swansea

A development of 70 new homes in Pennard, this project will deliver a mixture of much-needed open market and affordable housing in the Gower to those with a local connection.

With 19 of the total homes being available for social rent, we’re working alongside Down To Earth Construction to build 6 of these homes, which will be built with funding from Welsh Government’s Innovative Housing Programme (IHP). Down To Earth are a not for profit organisation who work with vulnerable groups to promote health and well-being through construction projects.

The IHP homes are built with natural, local materials – principally Welsh larch and sheep wool insulation – and each property features 5.4Kw of solar panelling. This should mean the homes act as power stations, generating more energy than they consume.

The next phase of the Pennard development is due for completion in late 2021, with final handover due in Summer 2022.

Coed Darcy, Neath

Receiving funding from the Welsh Government’s Innovative Housing Programme, this exciting project brings the first modular homes to Coastal. With 50 homes in total, 8 modular and 42 traditionally built homes, this development will include bungalows, houses and flats all for social rent. With handover of the modular homes expected in late 2021, the final handover of the development is due Summer 2022.

Our modular homes were delivered in sections weighing 11 tons, that were then hoisted into place on a pre-prepared slab for connection to utilities and final works. All of the modular homes were manufactured off site by Ilke Homes at its factory in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire and then delivered to our site in Neath. Benefits of building modular homes include a shorter construction time as well as reducing carbon emissions by half of site built homes.
