Swansea Uni picks Kier for materials research hub

Kier has won a £13.6m contract to build a new research and development facility for Swansea University’s College of Engineering on its Bay Campus.

The 6,000 m2 Impact building will include laboratory and office space for the College of Engineering and will support research with industry into materials science and technology.

It will include a metals technology centre for research into metallurgy and materials science, supporting partnerships with the metals industry in Wales and further afield. The aim is to pioneer new alloys, materials and metal manufacturing processes which can be used in engineering. Set to open in 2019, the plan is to have 65 new academic posts and 155 researchers.

The £17.4m project has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government and Swansea University.

Kier is also working for the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) to deliver the initial £26m phase of its new £300m Swansea Waterfront Innovation Quarter in the city.
