The South West Wales Best Practice Club are pleased to present their next breakfast event with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Come along and listen to Jane Davidson (Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor for Sustainability & Engagement) and the project director for delivery present on this exciting project.

In order to support its ambitious Estates strategy in Swansea, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David has acquired sizable areas of the remaining development land in the SA1 Waterfront area of Swansea. Following a period of masterplanning to identify the most appropriate areas of the site for the University’s core academic requirements , the intention will be to establish purpose-built facilities for learning, teaching and research as well as social, leisure and recreation space, subject to a detailed design development process.

The SA1 opportunity will enable flexible teaching space and applied research facilities to be developed, and for these to be integrated with business and the wider community. It will also enable student support services, a student union, library, sports and leisure facilities to be developed alongside or integrated with other community and commercial facilities. There could also be an opportunity to develop modern on-campus student residences alongside other city living housing and possibly shared facilities and services for the co-location of Further Education partners

The University intends to create the right economic and social context to bring added economic and cultural value to the City with investment in SA1 providing a significant potential  environment to support growth of micro-businesses and new enterprise education initiatives within the City.

The long term goal is to create a Swansea Waterfront Innovation Quarter that will be situated in a vibrant, modern waterfront location with easy access to the City centre. Key aims will be to:

1.         Support and enhance the student experience
2.         Contribute to the viability and ongoing sustainability of the University
3.         Stimulate investment and economic benefits to Swansea, Swansea Bay Region and beyond
4.         Provide opportunities for diversifying income streams as the University maximises its engagement with the private sector
5.         Establish a substantial University presence in the SA1 Waterfront area by 2018

We confirm numbers to the venue the day before the event and as numbers cannot be amended after that date we are charged in full for that amount. In order to reduce wastage at our events CEW operates a policy of only notifying venue details when issuing registration confirmation. This ensures we only cater for delegates who have registered and don’t over order for individuals who may or may not turn up on the day.
