Coed Darcy – Demonstration Village

The development was completed in conjunction with the Prince’s Foundation, the cluster of houses overlooks a lake at what was the most polluted part of the 1,060-acre Llandarcy site.



Project Detail

Coed Darcy Demonstration Village is part of a larger project regenerating the former BP Llandarcy Oil Refinery, which was decommissioned in the 1990s.

The village was intended to test a range of building materials, building types and sustainable technologies before they are applied on a wider scale.

The project was part of The Prince’s Foundation scheme and the design of the buildings have drawn inspiration from the Welsh locality in terms of style, construction techniques and resources.

St. Modwen Developments were the Client, Designer and Principal Contractor.

Safety For Design were employed to act as CDM-C and competent health and safety advisors for the project, providing the full range of health and safety support to the design team, site management and site teams.
