Grimshaw’s Welsh arts centre starts on site

Construction has begun on Grimshaw’s £25 million Pontio project - a new arts and innovation centre at Bangor University in Wales

Featuring a 450-seat theatre, a rehearsal studio, teaching rooms, a cinema and an outdoor amphitheatre, the Pontio building is designed to serve students, local businesses and the community.

The project will be built on the gradient between Bangor’s raised city centre and the lower College Park area. Other facilities on site include a student union, bars, cafés and a restaurant.

Designed by a team which included Grimshaw, Atkins, Arup and Gillespies, the project won planning permission in July last year and is expected to open in Spring 2013.
