Chris Evans, Associate, Lawray Architects

We are currently working with Nolan Commercial on a number of projects who have continued to deliver an impressive product along with a quality installation, which we feel is more important. Projects such as the re-cladding works at Maes yr Yrfa School are a credit to all involved and we hope to transfer this quality onto other projects in the future.

B Block University of South Wales Treforest Campus

Client: John Weaver Contractors
Value: £115,000
Product(s): Aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling with brise soleil

Construction and refurbishment of B Block at University of South Wales Treforest Campus has been completed in time for the start of the new academic year.

The £5.25m development has created a new, modern and highly visible frontage to the university’s main campus. The 1980s-esque polytechnic has been transformed into a distinctive higher education institution.

Contracted by John Weaver Contractors and working alongside architects Lawray Partnership, our services included the manufacture and installation of aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling with brise soleil, transforming the front elevations into spacious glass fronted lobbies. Visible to the public, the new building provides an impressive aspect for students and visitors to the university.

The building now houses enhanced student facilities, including a brand new 304-seat, state-of-the-art lecture theatre. The remainder of the building, B2 and B3, has been refurbished to create a series of new and modern multi-purpose teaching facilities. In addition, flexible, open plan office space has been created for support departments.

Formed by a merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales earlier this year, the University of South Wales is now one of the largest in the UK. The £5.23m development of B Block forms part of the university’s ongoing £130m investment in its campuses to create modern facilities for students and staff.
