Modular buildings specialist Wernick has been appointed to deliver a new teaching facility for Swansea University

The two-storey, 60 module building on Swansea University’s Bay Campus will be built ‘offsite’, using the latest innovations in modular design and build.

Modules will be manufactured in a quality-controlled factory environment in six weeks, with ground works on campus taking place simultaneously.

Handover is scheduled for November 2019 – an end-to-end build programme of just 22 weeks.

The £4.9m building has been procured through Fusion 21’s Education and Modular Buildings Framework.

It utilises Wernick’s latest modular Swiftplan system which as well as ensuring building efficiency, allows for greater versatility for the addition of architectural features.

Swiftplan’s non-combustible wall-panelling system provides an extra level of safety, and a hybrid natural ventilation system will ensure a comfortable environment for occupants.

The comprehensive interior fit-out includes folding partitions to create flexible spaces, lecture suites, PC labs and quiet zones.

Manufacture of the new teaching facility will take place at the Wernick Buildings factory in Port Talbot – right across the water from the Bay Campus.

Wernick’s modular buildings promise 60+ years design life while offering the flexibility to relocate or re-configure the building if required.

Stuart Wilkie, Managing Director at Wernick Buildings said We are delighted our local University has once again selected Wernick to deliver their new teaching accommodation.

“Higher education institutions such as Swansea University are leading the way – embracing modern methods of construction and all that modular buildings have to offer.”

Ian Macpherson, Associate Director – Estates & Facilities Management at Swansea University said: “We are very pleased to have appointed leading modular building supplier Wernick to deliver this new teaching accommodation at our Bay Campus.

“The new facility will provide additional teaching and learning environments to accommodate our growing student population, as well as offering flexible space to support a range of non-teaching activities and events to enhance the student experience here at Swansea.”
