A new £2m Higher Education Centre at Coleg Cambria’s Deeside campus has been completed by local contractor’s Wynne Construction.

Designed and built within a tight timescale due to funding requirements, the scheme was only given planning approval in September 2015, work started on site at the beginning of 2016.

The purpose built facility has been designed for Higher Education students enrolled at Swansea University undertaking engineering placements at the nearby Airbus factory in Broughton.

Two obsolete teaching blocks were demolished to make way for the new development which includes state-of-the-art lecture rooms, lab spaces, computer suites, social spaces and a high-tech video-conferencing room to enable communication with Swansea University’s main campus

The BREEAM Excellent rated’ scheme provides around 1000sqm of high quality teaching accommodation over two storeys and minimises energy demand by allowing natural ventilation, good levels of natural light and avoiding overheating where possible.

Air source heat pumps contribute to the building’s heating demand whilst solar panels on the roof provide a source of electricity for the building.[/vc_column_text][mp_carousel_1 carousel_images=”38295,38296,38297,38298,38299,38300,38301,38302″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
