Contractor named for major Cardiff education campus
Cardiff Council has announced that ISG has been selected as the preferred bidder for the design and build of a new joint education campus, to be located in the Fairwater area of the city.
The project will be the largest, in scale and investment, of Cardiff’s education developments delivered under Cardiff Council and Welsh Governments Band B Sustainable Communities for Learning Programme. Three new build schools will be located on one site, becoming home to Cantonian High School, Riverbank School and Woodlands High School.
ISG will undertake the detailed design and build process for the scheme, including the temporary accommodation associated with the works. Said to be a trailblazing development, the scheme will set the standard for future school projects. It is Cardiff’s first school campus to be operationally net-zero carbon, also targeting significant reduction in embodied carbon during build stage of the project.
Subject to planning and procurement, work on the new campus is expected to begin in 2023.
