Andrew Scott delivers St David’s Catholic Sixth Form College’s new teaching block

The Welsh building company Andrew Scott has successfully completed a new teaching block for St David’s Catholic Sixth Form College in Cardiff.

The new £6.3m teaching facility, built to BREEAM standards, was required to meet demand for the College’s expanding academic programme and creates a focal point on campus, with an emphasis on being environmentally sustainable. The innovative, contemporary, low energy building welcomes a two-storey high atrium space. The ground floor comprises of classrooms, ICT room and lecture theatre and further classrooms and administration offices are accommodated on the upper floor. There is also an external covered breakout space where students can meet, socialise and study. Photovoltaic technology has been incorporated on the main roof to provide power for the new building and the curved canopy has been finished with an eco- roof. These elements strongly reinforce the College’s aspiration in creating a sustainable teaching environment. Mark Bowen, Andrew Scott Managing Director, said: “We are very pleased to have successfully handed over the new teaching block to our client, St David’s Catholic Sixth Form College. Our team has worked close with the College to design and develop this fantastic new environmentally friendly facility which will benefit the staff and students as they progress on their net zero journey.”
