SDC is delighted to be awarded with Admiral’s ‘Supplier of the Year’ accolade following the completion of the Cambrian Centre in Newport, South Wales.
The Cambrian Centre is a seven-storey development located opposite the reconstructed Newport rail station in Queensway.
The project comprised the design, construction, and completion of a seven storey office building, retail units and lower ground floor car parking partly within an existing shopping centre.
The development provides nett lettable floor area of 7,500 sq. m. and accommodates 1,200 staff with 230 car parking spaces.
The works involved the demolition of existing buildings to prepare the site for the new development, before installing piled foundations to support the reinforced concrete frame structure. The external envelope comprises a colour coated metal panelised rainscreen cladding system with dry lining internally.
The roof has an insulated proprietary single layer membrane system on insulation on the reinforced concrete roof with the atrium roof formed in a similar way but with regularly spaced parallel rows of continuous roof lights.
The building services include centralised heating and cooling using a four pipe fan coil system. Heating and domestic hot water is via gas fired boilers with the cooling from externally located high efficiency chillers. All office areas, meanwhile, are mechanically ventilated.
The base build works were designed and built to achieve a BREEAM New Construction 2011 'Very Good' rating. The expectation is for the building to achieve an EPC <40 (B rating or better).
