Aberystwyth University Old College

In 2012, Aberystwyth University engaged Austin-Smith:Lord to lead the preparation of a Feasibility into the adaptive reuse of the Grade 1 listed Old College building in Aberystwyth. This Study was completed in 2013.

In 2015, the University revisited the findings of that Study and reviewed the options presented in the earlier study and prepared an updated Business Case. Following this, the University again engaged Austin-Smith:Lord to prepare revised information describing the potential use(s) of the building in the future in support of a Heritage Lottery Funding Application.

Heritage Lottery Funding for the Development Stage was confirmed in summer 2017 and Austin-Smith:Lord is now developing the detailed design of the capital project due to be completed in 2021.
