Opening in 2015, the Cardiff & Vale city centre campus cost £45m to build and now houses around 4,000 students. The college provides a state-of-the-art learning environment for students.
The campus includes 130 teaching rooms, including specialist labs, workshops, studios, IT suites, general teaching rooms and two vast learning and skills centres.
Our Naco unit worked with BDP architects and Borley Engineering Services and designed, supplied and installed natural air ventilators and Naco 75mm standard metal louvres to the building. An inlet configuration of the ventilators was chosen for its shallow depth and better performance rates when compared with other external louvres used in this application.

We have had many false digital dawns in the construction sector, but now it feels different. Progress on BIM is picking up pace and innovations like 3D printing are now being embraced more widely.
The CEILING Collection is the latest group of diffusers to join the Air Diffusion product range. These diffusers have been designed with all parties in mind, to ensure that from installer to end user, every individual can achieve optimum comfort.
The UK’s decision to leave the EU next year has brought uncertainty to the UK and is a process that will undoubtedly affect us all. It may change the ways that we operate and could bring many opportunities. But how will it affect the construction industry and regulations?
In recent years, our industry has witnessed a notable change in the way we go about delivering a quality-built indoor environment. Occupants now have a better understanding of the impact air quality has on their mental health and employers are starting to better appreciate the quality and productivity implications. But, why is it important that we, as building engineers, pay attention to this?
Digital tools and smart technologies are opening up incredible possibilities for building engineers; and making critical routine maintenance work less of a chore. Following its devastating fire last month, the plans to rebuild the Mackintosh building in Glasgow and the developments of remotely testing fire safety equipment are examples demonstrating these possibilities.
