Cardiff seeks architect for £300m innovation campus

  • Comment

Cardiff University is on the hunt for an architect for its new £300 million innovation campus

The high-profile project will deliver four new research centres on the brownfield Mainy Road site in Cathays.

Proposed new buildings include a Social Science Research Park; an Innovation Centre; a Translational Multidisciplinary Research Facility, and the Research Institute for Compound Semiconductor Technology.

The contract is divided into two tranches and with separate lots calling for architects; masterplanners and principal designers; project managers; cost consultants; civil and structural engineers; and mechanical, electrical and public health engineers.

Moses Cameron Williams Architects defeated Foster + Partners, HOK, Wilkinson Eyre, Allies and Morrison, Stride Treglown and Sheppard Robson in a competition to masterplan all of Cardiff’s campuses last year.

Earlier this year the university launched a design competition for a new £25 million student union building. The competition was later withdrawn and re-launched in April.

Completed structures on the Mainy Road site include the £30 million Hadyn Ellis Building (pictured) designed by IBI Nightingale. A second £50 million building by the same architect is due to complete later this year.

The deadline for requests to participate in the latest project is 12noon on 20 July.
