University of South Wales Newport Campus Refurbishment
Austin-Smith:Lord has been appointed by the University of South Wales to provide Interior Design services for phased refurbishment works at their Newport Campus. The scheme agenda is to shift the focus of the campus more to collaboration and social learning spaces, introduce specialist Hydra facilities, reimagine catering amenities, change to more agile staff workspace and improve staff & student wellbeing.
There is also a desire to increase engagement with the local community and businesses through reimagining facilities within the scheme. Post pandemic building use requirements have substantially changed, and the brief requirements have been collated by A-S:L through an extensive and successful consultation process with staff and students. The project is due for phased completion during 2023 & 2024.
