Caulmert utilised its engineering and environmental expertise as part of a multi-million-pound net zero sports science facility.
The North Wales-based consultancy provided civil, structural and geotechnical services on Grwp Llandrillo Menai’s new Canolfan Chwaraeon.
The centre encompasses a new sports hall, large gym, laboratories, and staff rooms, and features some of the latest cutting-edge technology and equipment for monitoring sporting performance and excellence.
The project was designed to Building Information Modelling (BIM) level two and Caulmert utilised the latest software including Tekla Structural Designer analysis, Autodesk Revit, and Civil 3D’s MicroDrainage in the design.
The development has since been certified Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment (BREEAM) excellent.
Built by Read Construction and funded in partnership with Welsh Government, the new facility at the Llangefni campus ranks among the top 10 per cent of builds in the UK for environmental performance.
Caulmert also provided other services during the construction phase for Read Construction under a design and build contract.
The project also reached a Considerate Constructors Scheme rating of excellent and had an 85 per cent Welsh spend with 85 per cent of the supply chain being small and medium-sized enterprises.
Caulmert’s associate structural engineer, Jonathan Parry, said: “It was wonderful to work on a project that will undoubtedly benefit the local community, and our team successfully showcased its skillset on all aspects of it.
“With any job we undertake, the impact on the environment is always a priority. The fact this net zero build also ranks so highly for sustainability is another huge plus for us.”
