The centre of Cardiff is undergoing a transformational change, with the prestigious Central Square development quickly becoming an architectural focal point for the City.
We’re very proud to have been involved with external envelope for the new BBC Cymru Wales Headquarters, and to see the adjacent Transport Interchange building progressing well, with our LineAL-X Extruded Aluminium Plank system in a powder coated finish forming part of an intricately detailed facade.
Designed by Foster + Parners, Cardiff Interchange borders a vibrant public plaza, and will be a spectacular new gateway for visitors arriving to the city by train or bus.
The new interchange will be relocated closer to the Cardiff Central train station, allowing greater integration with rail and other transport networks. The new design focuses on legibility and ease of access with the aim of transforming the area into a new transport hub for the city. Designed to provide for a projected future increase in passenger traffic, it features world-class facilities for passengers and staff all under one roof, including an airport-style lounge, shops, cafes and restaurants, and a basement level car-park. With real-time information displays and dynamic stand allocation, it is designed to cater to the growing demands of one of the fastest-growing cities in the UK.
The mixed-use development also features offices and residential units on the upper floors, and the new public concourse opens directly on to the new public plaza on Central Square, creating an exciting new experience for visitors and residents alike.
Huge thanks to our client Britannia Site Solutions Limited for the opportunity and a superb installation. We can’t wait to see the finished results!
