From the Narberth location Ken Morgan has travelled as far North as Manchester working for Manchester University. The project involved the creation of a tourist information centre for the Arboretum at Jodrell Bank.

In the East, at Swindon a new factory was designed and built for Biomet, manufacturers of orthopaedic prostheses, involving clinically sterile facilities. This was the third project carried out for Biomet.

Further East in London at Ladbroke Grove, Kensington, we obtained planning approval for residential apartments.

For two brewery companies' redevelopment and alterations schemes were ranged along the M3, M4 and M5 ranged from Ashford in Kent to Borth in Ceredigion. In these cases our project management skills were utilised to maintain the public house trade whilst alterations and extensions were built. Most were carried out on a fast-track basis with a maximum turnaround from start to finish of 12 weeks.

The most recent industrial projects involving steel-framed construction in West Wales were Offices and Factory units in Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven. The building for Cambrian Windows Plc was a 10,000 sq m production facility for manufacturing Upvc windows. The building for M&A Engineering produced a two storey office block and manufacturing workshop for servicing the petro-chemical industry. This required an overhead travelling gantry crane fitted to fine tolerances within the workshop.

Measured surveys

Prior to working on a building or a site we normally carry out a measured survey to establish the size and layout of the building, site boundaries and the levels of the site.

Planning

Ken Morgan Design and Building Management Ltd can advise on the planning policies of the various councils and how they may affect a proposed development.

In some cases we have negotiated with councils to obtain a Certificate of Lawful Use for a development which may initially have been built by clients without the proper planning and building regulations approvals in place.

We can advise on the need for a planning appeal where a development has been refused. In some more complex cases we involve an independent Town Planning Consultant for additional advice.

We have experience in dealing with Listed Buildings Applications.

For many planning applications it is necessary for us to prepare a Design and Access statement setting out the main principles of the development.
