he Vale of Glamorgan Council faces, like many other LEAs, challenges to deliver new schools fit for the 21st century against a backdrop of ever diminishing capital and revenue budgets. 

Ysgol Gymraeg Nant Talwg represents the development of a cost-effective primary school for 210 pupils and a nursery based on a template design derived from previous projects and refined over a number of years. The “Agilis” model school, jointly developed by the contractor and architect, features an efficiency of design, a lean building process, speedy construction and cost effectiveness compared to a more traditional bespoke option. It offers flexibility through removable internal walls and the ability for the client to customise the external appearance as well as the internal positioning of certain elements such as toilet blocks.

This event will set out the process from preconstruction through construction and on to occupation. It demonstrates the value of maintaining an integrated team throughout the delivery of a number of projects to continually refine and improve the final product. Reference will also be made to other associated projects at Ysgol Dewi Saint Primary school and Oakfield Primary school, to demonstrate the value of continuity between projects and the potential for further improvements against an established model.

Given the ongoing financial challenges facing the public sector this is a “must attend” event for anyone involved in delivering new schools across Wales.
