Chartered Building Company ASD Build has been awarded a £2m contract for remediation cladding works across two high-rise social housing buildings in Cardiff Bay.

ASD Build has been appointed by Cardiff Community Housing Association (CCHA) to replace existing timber cladding on Aquila House and Galleon House – both
over 18m in height.

RSL organisation CCHA was awarded £2.6m in a capital grant from the Welsh government’s High Rise Residential Building (HRRB) Safety Fund, which enabled it to engage with ASD Build to deliver the contract over 12 months.

“The backbone of ASD Build’s DNA is professionalism; it’s what we strive for every day”

Delivery will include an insured contractor’s design to full installation of the replacement cladding system. ASD’s design complements the existing material while achieving full compliance.

Mark Hennessey, managing director with ASD Build, said: “This is the first social HRRB building in Wales to receive support as part of the UK Building Safety Bill and we are extremely pleased to have been entrusted to deliver this contract.

“The backbone of ASD Build’s DNA is professionalism; it’s what we strive for every day. High specification products are perfect for us to implement our high technical ability in design and build.

“It’s what we are renowned for and justifies our role in the construction industry as a reputable contractor.”
