Hewitt Studios are currently developing designs to re-house a wood recycling charity as part of the Crindau flood alleviation scheme (FAS) in South Wales.
We are working with Natural Resources Wales and JBA Bentley to create new premises for Reseiclo, replacing their old home which currently lies within a flood risk area.
Reseiclo Community Wood Recycling is a Social Enterprise (not-for-profit company) formed in 2007 in Newport and is dedicated to the rescue of waste wood from being needlessly thrown away.
Reseiclo collect ‘waste’ timber from all over South Wales, mostly construction sites. They work with some of the biggest Construction Companies in the UK, like Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon Homes, as well as collecting wooden packaging from the Industrial and Commercial sectors.
Their new premises will help them to make and sell all sorts of wooden items from this reclaimed timber, whilst also assisting the training and rehabilitation of disadvantaged adults.
