Bam wins role on £50m Cardiff University student centre

Bam Construct has secured a major role on a £50m university scheme in Wales.

The Hertfordshire-based contractor is the preferred bidder to carry out preconstruction services for Cardiff University’s landmark Centre for Student Life.

The scheme is part of the university’s biggest campus upgrade in a generation.

Designed by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the centre will create a central hub for student support services as well as offering flexible social learning spaces and a 550-seat lecture theatre.

Work is due to start later this year, with completion anticipated in 2019.

Professor Amanda Coffey said: “To maintain our status as one of the top universities in the country, it is vital that we are able to compete with the very best institutions and provide facilities of the highest standard.

“The centre is part of an ongoing £600m investment in our campus, including £260m to provide world-leading facilities for our students.”
