Padarn Café - Kier Facilities Services


Sector: Education

What we did: New Cafe and Central Production Kitchen

Due to a constant increase in student numbers, Aberystwyth University were faced with a choice - build a new campus or revitalise an old one.  After careful consideration of the financial implications there was only one real choice - revitalise.

Kier Facilities Services were appointed as main contractor to undertake the refurbishment of four buildings on the Llanbadarn Campus, which had not been used for some time. One of those buildings was Padarn - home to the original campus kitchen and refectory, which like the other buildings, had been de-commissioned several years before.  At the request of the University with whom Space Design have worked with for many years, we were appointed by Kier to design and fit out the new student cafe and production kitchen.

On completion of the project the new café 'Blas Padarn' has quickly become the hub of the new campus.
