 Building for the future
Welsh aluminium fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium has secured a major contract to support the construction of a new student accommodation building in Cardiff's Capital Quarter.
Dudley's secured the £1m contract with ISG plc, and will install Kawneer capped curtain walling, windows and doors for the accommodation rooms as well as state-of- the-art automatic doors for the entrances.
The announcement of the Capital Quarter student accommodation is an exciting development for the area as it is estimated that Cardiff requires 15,000 extra student accommodation rooms. The development is well located for students at all South Wales universities, as well as Cardiff Central train station and its ‘tooth’ design will give it a strong identity and potential to become a well-known Cardiff landmark.
Dudley's will begin work on the project early 2018 with the completion date estimated for November 2018.
Speaking about the new project, Colin Shorney, managing director of Dudley's says: "We are thrilled to have secured the new Cardiff Capital Quarter student accommodation contract and to be working with ISG plc again.
"We have worked with ISG on a number of projects, including the new BBC Cymru Wales headquarters, so we are happy to be working with them on the construction of the new student accommodation.The project is sure to be an exciting one that will bring a great energy and opportunities to the Cardiff area and the student population, and we are delighted to be part of the project."
In addition to the Capital Quarter student accommodation, Dudley’s has secured a number of high- profile contracts in Cardiff during the last 12 months,
  including the new BBC Cymru Wales HQ, which it began working on earlier this year and another £1m project – Bayscape – in Cardiff Marina.
Dudley’s reputation for quality has been recognised with several industry-related accreditations.The company is CHAS and Achilles accredited, Constructionline registered and certified to manufacture “Secured by Design” products. ❐
