    A landmark retail and leisure-led development of the St David’s and Oystermouth Road South sites in the heart of Swansea, comprising of: retail units, cafés and restaurants, residential provision, car parking, a large entertainment venue and hotel complex.

    The residential and parking developments to the north of the site are connected to the 3500 seat arena south of Oystermouth Road via a dramatic, curved pedestrian bridge.

    Key Points:

    • Major public sewers underlie critical parts of the site, requiring complex negotiations with Welsh Water. Negotiated build-over
      agreements have been incorporated into the design.
    • Multiple interchanges for vehicles and pedestrians required, including accesses for private vehicles, service deliveries, taxi and bus drop-offs, maintenance and
      emergency vehicle routes, all requiring detailed coordination with the structural design.
    • Very heavy loads to the podium slab level, resulting from vehicle access and dense landscaping.
    • 45m span pedestrian bridge to be built over the existing dual carriageway with minimum
      disruption.
    • Listed revetment walls and pedestrian tunnels to be retained at the site boundary.
