Tenants helped back into work at Cwm Ifor development

12 Mar 2021



The Cwm Ifor development has received funding and support from the Welsh Government’s Innovative Housing Fund to deliver highly insulated, energy efficient homes, with United Welsh working in partnership with Caerphilly Council and Kingfisher Developments.

It will see the creation of 12 one-bedroom apartments, 4 two-bedroom homes and 3 three-bedroom houses using Passivhaus principles; an advanced low energy construction standard for buildings.

By using high performance insulation and making a building completely draught free, it effectively eliminates heat loss to create a building with very low environmental impact.

The scheme has created job opportunities for United Welsh tenants like Callum, Stuart and Anthony to learn new construction skills that can be applied for the build of more low carbon homes in future.

United Welsh provides over 6,000 homes across 11 local authorities in South Wales, and after delivering more than 1,000 homes in the past five years, we intend to build at least 1,300 in the next five.
