Safety For Design are the Principal Designer for the Swansea University’s Bay Campus, which is being delivered on St. Modwen’s 65 acre former BP Transit site in Neath Port Talbot on the eastern approach into Swansea. As the PD for phase 1a and 1b of the project we are working with main construction companies Vinci Construction, Morgan Sindall and Galliford Try as well as other contractors ensuring communication and coordination, particularly in design and delivery of the project ‘Soft Landing’ process. The Campus will provide academic, accommodation and research space. Development work will continue up until 2020 and the majority of the works will be completed during this first phase of construction, open for the first intake of students in September 2015.
Facilities 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, the Students’ Union, facilities and meeting rooms and an impressive Great Hall will house an auditorium, lecture theatres and a cafe offering views across the Swansea Bay towards Baglan Bay. There will be catering provision throughout the campus to include cafes, bars and a restaurant, retail units including a laundrette. This will be in addition to recreational sporting facilities and a beach, for all to enjoy.
