Morganstone has been appointed, by Kartay Holdings Ltd, as the main contractor for the new Princess Quarter project in Swansea.
The building will be brought back into beneficial use with a viable and attractive development that contributes to the current regeneration of the city, ensuring a vibrant, active and sustainable neighbourhood.
It will see a contemporary, multi-storey development compromising of retail units on the ground floor and three storeys of office accommodation. The grade A office accommodation will provide a characterful workspace that is designed to high quality specification meeting the needs of the 21st Century office space in the city. The work will consist of the conversion, external refurbishment (including glazed curtain walling) and a two-storey extension including roof terrace, three rooftop meeting pods and green infrastructure.
The new building will utilise low carbon technologies in the form of high-efficiency air source heat pumps providing heating and cooling via a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system and will be designed to be ‘all-electric’, to negate the reliance on fossil-fuel, lowering the buildings longer term carbon footprint.
