19 Aug 2015
Cardiff telecoms firm TWL Voice and Data has been a key part of the £450 million Cardiff and Vale College development which will be a landmark development for education in the city.
TWL has worked on the new Cardiff and Vale College site located just off Dumballs Road in Cardiff, installing 2200 Cat6a Data points, 500 Cores of fibre and over 200 Dell WIFI access points as part of five month project along with Circle IT and Evans Electrical.
The development, Canal Parade, is the biggest current building development in the project covering 16,000 square metres (172,000 sq ft) and will be opening to students this September ready for the 2015/16 academic year.
“It’s a huge honour to work on a landmark development in the city,” said Andrew Nicholson, Managing Director of TWL Voice and Data. “This is a huge step forward for the further education system, and these facilities will truly allow pupils and staff to improve the standard for the benefit of the whole of South Wales.”
The building will be holding 4,000 students based in the building that will be working across 200 different courses.
“We’re working on a few projects with our collaborative partners at Circle IT and Evans Electrical both in the public and private sector,” continued Mr Nicholson. “Due to the high volume of students that will be working in the building the need for good quality infrastructure is crucial. We are so glad to have been chosen for this project and hope many similar installments will follow.”
