Local construction firms invited to find out about work opportunities on £100m, 800-home Cardiff urban village

City housing developer Lovell is inviting local construction businesses to find out about opportunities to work on a major Cardiff housing development by attending an event at Cardiff City Stadium on Thursday, 8 September.

Lovell is seeking supply chain partners to work on The Mill, a new 800-home development in Canton, Cardiff. The landmark scheme – which is being delivered by a partnership of Lovell, the Tirion Group and Cadwyn Housing Association – will transform the former Arjo Wiggins Paper Mill site, to the west of the city centre with 800 homes for purchase and rent.

Work will start later this year on the first new housing to be built through the seven-year construction programme which is expected to create over 1,000 jobs.

Lovell regional director Kate Rees says: “As one of Wales’ largest regeneration programmes, The Mill will create significant work opportunities for local businesses.  Our supply chain partner event on 8 September will enable new and existing members of our supply chain to find out more and meet our project team. It’s a great opportunity to get involved in this exciting project which will bring much-needed high-quality new-build homes to Cardiff.”

The supply chain partner event will take place from 9am to 11am on Thursday, 8 September at the Ricoh Suite 2, Cardiff City Stadium, Leckwith Road, Cardiff CF11 8AZ. The event is free but anyone planning to attend is asked to register in advance at

As part of its commitment to investing in local communities, Lovell is set to deliver considerable training opportunities, including apprenticeships, through the construction programme at The Mill with plans for a National Skills Academy programme which will offer apprenticeships and training placements for local people.
