Arts & Culture - Wales
Our Bristol and Cardiff offices delivered the engineering for this £80m landmark leisure and mixed use scheme in the heart of Swansea. Appointed to Rivington Land and Swansea Council, Curtins worked as part of a multi-discipline team seeking to maximise the value of residential, retail, leisure and car parking development, all placed around an attractive, newly-created public realm.
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. Multiple interchanges for vehicles and pedestrians required, including accesses for private vehicles, service deliveries, taxi drop-offs’, bus drop-offs, maintenance and emergency vehicle routes, all requiring detailed coordination with the structural design.
Listed revetment walls and pedestrian tunnels to be retained at the site boundary.
45m span pedestrian bridge to be built over the existing dual carriageway with minimum disruption.
Very heavy loads to the podium slab level, resulting from vehicle access and dense landscaping.
Major public sewers underlie critical parts of the site.
Curtins conducted complex negotiations with Welsh Water, which resulted in build-over agreements being incorporated into the design.
A new-build Visitor Centre with internal and external spaces to educate local school children and day trip visitors.
A bespoke community building to Passivhaus standards, providing a nursery, youth centre, training spaces and community hall.
Redevelopment of Opera North's existing facilities to provide modern spaces for the leading arts organisation.
Restoration and retrofitting to one of the oldest buildings on Edinburgh's Royal Mile.
Engineering to save the Albert Dock from demolition, followed by 40 years of continuous involvement.
