Merthyr Learning Quarter


Merthyr College



The new Merthyr Learning Quarter offers both FE & ME Courses supported by the University of South Wales. We were brought on board to develop the design of the new 5-storey building with the main contractor, to support the College's 21st century education programme. The distinct 13,000m2 design focuses on:


  • community use
  • creating opportunities to experience new ways of learning
  • providing open and accessible pathways to personal growth
  • new emerging technologies


The final design has a distinctive identity which offers a sense of openness and inclusiveness within a safe, low energy and low carbon facility that has been designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
