Architect’s testimonial
Holder Mathias
The interchange is an extremely complex, challenging and multi-layered project that, once complete, will provide a modern, innovative and truly mixed-use set of environments. Not only will it deliver Cardiff’s new bus and coach station, but it will provide a landmark residential offer in a key city centre location and dynamic new office accommodation. We are delighted to have the opportunity to implement our designs in partnership with Rightacres and ISG in a scheme that fuses so many vital elements of the city together and is the final piece of the Central Square regeneration development.
Contractor’s testimonial
The Cardiff Interchange has been one of the most highly anticipated developments of recent years and this announcement reflects real collaboration and vision from all project stakeholders to create a mixed-use scheme that delivers for our city. Not only will this dramatically improve connectivity for businesses, residents and visitors to Cardiff, but alongside the iconic BBC Wales headquarters, will transform this strategic gateway site.
