Black Clawson, Newport


Lawray embarked on this project alongside Redrow Homes following the Council’s approval to allow for the regeneration of the existing Black Clawson site, the proposed site being part of an overall £200m masterplan to provide new housing and facilities to the local populace.

The Brief

Forming a major part of the City of Newport’s regeneration programme, this £9 million development on the former Black Clawson waterfront site, comprises of two, three, and four bedroom units in detached, terraced, and apartment configurations. Lawray’s technical language was key to securing this appointment ensuring the resources to produce information in a timely manner for Redrows to act upon.

Our Solution

Working again with Redrow Homes, Lawray’s residential team were now in tune with Redrow’s technical delivery expectations and ensured the works were completed to a high standard within a budget that provided the required return on investment. Our team worked closely with the construction team attending various workshops and maintaining a positive stream of communication. We delivered Building Regs/Production drawings, in accordance with the demanding programme, and deadlines that allowed Redrow Homes to procure relevant tender packages and continue their investment across further phases of development.

Lawray has been a partner of the Corporation of the Church House for over 20 years and in that time has been heavily involved in several large refurbishment projects. The team’s knowledge and skills have proved invaluable in the areas of design, planning and project administration. When redeveloping a listed property, Lawray have ensured that they treat the architecture with sympathy whilst producing space that is effective for modern day requirements. Lawray continues to work closely with our in-house team on forthcoming projects and we would have no hesitation in recommending their work to others.
