Wrexham university seeks 'top class' architect for student flats

  • Comment
Glyndŵr University in Wrexham is looking for ‘top class’ architects to design new student accommodation north of its Plas Coch campus.

The winner of the international open competition, which has been organised by the RIBA Competitions Office, will mastermind an ‘aspirational’ development housing 500 graduates and undergraduates, as well as a student service building with a refectory and offices.

The site on the outskirts of the Welsh town will sit next to an existing student village and it is hoped the flats will be complete by spring 2010.

Peter Rhodes, the university’s head of estates, said: ‘As a new, young university committed to the spirits of enterprise, we felt there would be nothing better than to invite top-class architects to help shape the future look of our Wrexham campus.

‘We’re investing heavily in improving on-campus facilities over the next few years and the new student residences is just one part of this project.'

The full competition brief can be downloaded at www.ribaglyndwruniversity.co.uk. The deadline for submission of stage one designs is Friday, 31 October 2008.
