STEAM Academy, Bridgend
We provided NEC3 Supervisor services for the construction of the new STEAM Academy for Bridgend College.
The Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) Academy is a new sixth form education facility at Bridgend College’s Pencoed campus. The new building will include workshops for vehicle maintenance, welding, M&E, Pneumatics and CNC machining. It will also provide laboratories, classrooms, staff areas, a hall, café and break out social learning spaces.
Plans for the 8,500 sqm building were drawn up by Rio Architects to ‘create a building of high architectural excellence, which is contemporary and reflects a modern high-quality teaching facility, whilst paying deference to the existing campus environment. The building has adopted a collegiate aesthetic employing warm tones and textures with crisp detailing and well considered proportions’
Our role as NEC3 Supervisor is to ensure that the highest quality of workmanship is maintained. We attend site to test and inspect the quality of work, and ensure any defects are identified and rectified prior to completion of works. The new building ‘topped out’ on the 7th September 2020, and we are now working with the client and contractor to ensure the quality of internal fittings.
