The new £20m Coleg y Cymoedd campus in Aberdare has been part-funded by the Welsh Government and is a priority scheme in the 21st Century Schools Programme.  The new campus will open in September 2017 providing variety of practical workshops in carpentry, plumbing and electrics, catering courses, hair and beauty spaces, and student facilities to replace those on the existing campus.  The project also includes the refurbishment of the existing disused railway station building and car parking facilities for the college including local road upgrades. The project is set to achieve BREEAM Excellent, an accolade that demonstrates the combined team commitment to sustainability.

To ensure the scheme was feasible, a number of site related challenges needed to be overcome. These included dealing with contaminated land, and the nearby river leaving the proposed site on a flood plain. A collaborative engineered approach by Kier and the Design Team provided a workable solution, providing cost certainty, and delivered within the required timescale.

Refreshments and registration will be from 7,30am and the event will commence at 8am with a presentation from the team followed by a site visit. Full PPE is required. The event will conclude at approximately 11am.
