Canolfan S4C Yr Egin
AA110 curtain walling, AA 720 doors and window vents, and series 190 doors from KAWNEER feature on the new £10 million creative and digital centre, Canolfan S4C Yr Egin, on the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s Carmarthen campus.
Specified by BDP architects, they were installed over 10 months by a team of up to eight from Kawneer-approved dealer APiC UK for main contractor Kier Construction.
The AA 110 zone-drained curtain walling with 65mm sightlines was used alongside Kawneer’s AA 720 doors and series 190 automatic entrance doors on the ground floor which houses a public café alongside performance space and auditorium as well as resources for community groups and offices for the building’s administrative staff.
The AA 110 system also features on the first floor, which is let to the centre’s main anchor tenant – Welsh language broadcaster S4C - for its headquarters (corporate, communications, finance, business affairs and legal departments) alongside actuator-operated AA 720 top-hung, open-out window vents.
It also features on the third floor, which is let to a number of different companies working in the creative and digital sector, as well as on a clerestory lantern above an atrium which overarches the three storeys. Many of these tenants will offer work experience to UWTSD students, allowing them to make the most of the university’s connections during their studies.
