Architect will design £26m city centre community campus

Architect BDP has won a competition to design the £26m Cardiff City Centre Community Campus for Cardiff and Vale College.

The 16,000m2 scheme will be the largest college in Wales.

The faculties of the college will be clustered around a public route through the heart of the campus and the roof will be angled to accommodate a 1,850m2 solar photovoltaic array.

BDP will provide architecture design, interior design and landscape architecture design on the scheme.

The scheme is due to start on site in August this year and complete in April 2015.
