08 Mar Coed Darcy | St. Modwen Annual Report images
I have been to the massive redevelopment of BP’s Oil Refinery at Llandarcy in South Wales quite a few times now. The oil refinery closed in 1998 and the site is now being redeveloped by St. Modwen now known as Coed Darcy. The Prince’s Trust is also involved in the creation of this new village on the site which is due for completion in 2026. The development will include 4000 homes and also 4 schools.
This particular visit to the site was to photograph progress on site and capture images that are to be used in the Annual Report for St. Modwen. Initial construction works on site centre around the removal of all the effects of the land usage by the Oil Refinery for eighty years.
The following construction photographs show a number of these aspects I was instructed to cover.
- Land reclamation and cleansing
- Oil skimming
- Commencement of the Urban Village and Bio-pad
- Corporate imagery and branding
