Health Care Relocation

After securing the Mechanical and Electrical contract for Cardiff University’s Health Care Relocation back in January 2023, CMB commenced work on the project just 2 months later and successfully handed the project over to satisfied clients in December of the same year.


This facility will now see Cardiff University’s School of Healthcare Sciences located on a single site for the first time since its inception and will provide an increased number of teaching and immersive educational spaces for students and teachers alike.

The Health Care Relocation involves the refurbishment of 2 buildings in the former Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) site, just off the Gabalfa Interchange. The buildings will be used by Cardiff University to accommodate the healthcare school’s new teaching and practical spaces and will include the addition of new offices, meeting rooms, practical rooms for the development and assessment of physical skills, communication booths, a simulation suite based on a realistic hospital ward setting, student study and breakout spaces and additional welfare facilities including a living suite and garden spaces.

Professor David Whitaker, Head of the School of Healthcare Sciences for Cardiff University, commented on the development saying:


“This is an ambitious project with our intention to deliver education in our newly redeveloped building from January 2024. What the past few years has proved is that, as a School community, we tackle challenges wholeheartedly and successfully. The contribution of our staff and students to the pandemic was nothing short of outstanding; with students deployed to work in our embattled NHS and staff providing essential training for NHS workers.


This redevelopment project will give us a bespoke facility that will ensure we continue to help students become the best possible healthcare professionals.”


CMB worked closely with main contractor ISG as well as other subcontractors and managed to deliver two fully refurbished buildings in less than 10 months. Nick Furzeland, ISG Operations Manager, commented on the project saying:


“This project has genuinely been a true collaborative effort from start to finish, and one of the most enjoyable and rewarding projects I have worked on in my career to date.”
