Swansea University - Bay Campus

Thursday, 16 April, 2015

2015 has so far, been our busiest year to date. As a direct result of the hard work the team here has accomplished; we are proud to announce our first major contract win of 2015: Swansea University’s Bay Campus.

We have been chosen as the sole supplier of loose furniture across the entire 775,000 sq ft, £450 million development; the largest campus development in the UK. Swansea University’s Bay Campus is being delivered on St. Modwen’s 65 acre former BP Transit site in Neath Port Talbot on the eastern approach into Swansea and will have the distinction of being one of the few global universities with direct access onto a beach and its own seafront promenade. The new campus marks the next step in the University’s journey in becoming one of the top-5 Knowledge Economy projects in Europe.

Colleges based at the Bay Campus include the College of Engineering and the School of Management. There will be a Tower Information Centre which will be home to central support services for students, a state of the art library and resource centre, the Students’ Union, facilities and meeting rooms and an impressive Great Hall will house an auditorium for 800, lecture theatres and a cafe offering magnificent views across the Swansea Bay towards Gower and Baglan Bay. There will be extensive catering provision throughout the campus to include cafes, bars and a restaurant, retail units include a mini market, laundrette and cash points. All of this will be in addition to recreational sporting facilities and a beach, for all to enjoy. Phase 1 is due to be completed in September 2015; ready for the arrival of new students.
