The half-day event in the Business School’s Postgraduate Teaching Centre on 16 November will introduce major construction companies hoping to build the Campus to potential sub-contractors and suppliers.
Bouygues and Sir Robert McAlpine are understood to be the major contractors chasing the project.
Chris Strong, Portfolio Director, Cardiff Innovation Campus, said: “Our ‘Meet the Bidders’ event is designed to give companies early access to the big players bidding for the construction and fit-out contract, which we expect to announce at the end of December 2017.
“Inviting expressions of interest from supply-chain providers now will help ease the start of the build in 2018.
“We are interested in talking to a range of contractors and suppliers, from heavy plant operators through to companies providing office fixtures and fittings.”
Cardiff Innovation Campus is at the heart of the University’s vision for economic prosperity in Wales.
Two new buildings on the Maindy Road site will house four academic centres of excellence.
One will house SPARK, the world’s first social science research park, and the Innovation Centre – a creative space for start-ups, spin-outs and partnership working.
The other will be home to two leading scientific research establishments – the Institute for Compound Semiconductors and Cardiff Catalysis Institute.
