The Aberglasney Piggeries project was fully funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It involved the restoration and change of use of a group of derelict farm buildings on the site, once the piggeries of Aberglasney Home Farm.
Aberglasney House is a grade II* listed mansion sited within over 10 acres of gardens.
The project aims to provide an education and visitor centre, inspiration and training for a new generation of gardeners as well as students with learning difficulties and school children and is the latest in a line of restoration projects at Aberglasney.
RVW were involved at an early stage to look at the feasibility of providing a more economic and sustainable means of foul and surface water drainage disposal.
The initial brief was to provide drainage for the restored buildings and existing cottages only; this was then extended to encompass the entire site foul drainage, including the mansion house, café and visitor toilets.
RVW provided a full design service for the provision and installation of a package treatment plant to serve the site. This included close liaison with Natural Resources Wales to ensure that their stringent water quality requirements could be met.
