ISG Secures Cardiff University Project

ISG Secures Cardiff University ProjectISG has secured its first ever project with Cardiff University, appointed to the £13.5m new Business School development at its Cathays Park campus.

Designed as a signature building within the University's property portfolio, the facilities at the striking new building will play an important role in continuing to attract students from across the world to study in Cardiff.

Centralising Cardiff Business School's excellent postgraduate business resources within a purpose-built, state-of-the-art building, the facility will feature a 250-seat lecture theatre and impressive environmental credentials. Comprising over 54,300 sq ft of accommodation, the business school incorporates an elliptical four-storey structure with distinctive terracotta rainscreen cladding to its façade and an attached two-storey teaching wing with extensive curtain walling.

Providing the university with maximum flexibility, the impressive elliptical lecture theatre has been designed with bi-fold walls and folding partitions, so the building can also be used as a high-specification conferencing venue. The new structure also contains a range of modular offices, flexible teaching spaces, two postgraduate common rooms and a large central core and break out area.

Targeting a BREEAM Excellent environmental performance rating, the new Business School will be constructed using high specification building materials, incorporate a roof mounted photo voltaic installation to generate carbon free electricity, and also features a rainwater harvesting and re-use system to flush toilets within the building. The project will also help to enhance the biodiversity of the campus through the addition of bird and bat boxes, the creation of log pile habitats and an attractive hard and soft landscaping scheme. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2014, ahead of the new academic year.
