Cardiff University appointed property and construction consultants Gleeds to project manage phase one of its £32m student accommodation development. The new-built accommodation scheme is located at the university's Talybont complex and it will house 725 residences. The estimated time of completion is at the beginning of the 2020 academic year.

The project is still in the initial design stage; however, it is expected to be made up of six-bed clusters. Also, the project is expected to advantage from the off-site construction methods to speed up its construction process in Cardiff. Appointing the design team and cost consultants will be Gleeds responsibility. The appointments are already a part of the project management services, which Gleeds run as well.

Gleeds director in Wales, Simon Williams, said: “With our strong track record in the higher education sector, we feel we are best placed to deliver on the university’s aspirations for this exciting on-campus, new-build scheme.

"Creating access to cutting-edge facilities is crucial to keeping universities competitive, but it’s also vital to encourage more students to the area in order to help support the local workforce and economy in the years to come."

Cardiff University is an innovative and ambitious university offering an exceptionally good educational experience to students. It is located in Cardiff, the 10th largest city in the UK, and the capital and the largest city of Wales. And as one of the top 100 universities in the UK, it has been investing heavily in its facilities for the last few years as part of its wider campus redevelopment programme.
