Swansea Council will need to find £30 million to refurbish Percy Thomas' Grade-I listed Guildhall (pictured), according to consultant surveyor Davis Langdon. The firm said the building, constructed from 1932-36, needs major roof and structural repairs as well as an overhaul of the heating and power systems. Boasting a 49m-high clock tower, the Guildhall was once mooted as a possible home for the Welsh Assembly. The council said it was too early to say if the project would be opened up for a competition.
