Leisure centre builders chosen.
CONSTRUCTION giant Laing O'Rourke has been appointed preferred contractor for the refurbishment of Swansea Leisure Centre.
Laing O'Rourke, the largest privately owned construction company in the UK, will commence the second stage of a two-stage contract with main construction works starting late summer and completed in December 2007.
Chris Holley, leader of Swansea Council, said, 'We are delighted to have appointed Laing O'Rourke - their track record speaks for itself.'
WALES Environment Trust and Arena Network have joined forces in a new partnership that aims to divert 200,000 tonnes of waste from landfills in Wales by helping businesses exchange their waste.
The new project, Map-Is (Material Action Programme Industrial Symbiosis) will help businesses reduce waste and become resource efficient. Programme manager Paul Carroll said Map-Is would run synergy workshops for businesses 'to find another business that can use their byproducts as a valuable resource material.'
