Cardiff telco toasts landmark development in £450 million project

Cardiff-based Telco TWL Voice and Data has played a key part in the £450 million development of Cardiff and Vale College.

As part of a five-month project, it’s worked on the site of the new college – located just off Dumballs Road in Cardiff – installing 2200 Cat6a Data points, 500 Cores of fibre and over 200 Dell WIFI access points.

Canal Parade, which is the biggest building in the project, covering 172,000 sq ft, will open this September for the 2015/16 academic year and hold 4,000 students working across 200 different courses.

Andrew Nicholson, managing director of TWL Voice and Data, said: “It’s a huge honour to work on a landmark development in the city.

“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.

“We’re working on a few projects with our collaborative partners at Circle IT and Evans Electrical both in the public and private sector.

“Due to the high volume of students 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 projects will follow.”
