News: Landmark School for Abercynon
ChandlerKBS has been appointed to work in partnership with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council to oversee the design and construction of a new community primary school in Abercynon.
The Abercynon school project is currently at the design stage. Once completed in summer 2013, the landmark-designed school will accommodate more than 400 pupils currently educated at Abercynon Infants. Carnetown Primary and Abertaf Primary. It will use sustainable technology to reduce energy consumption compared to the schools it replaces.
An Adult Education Centre and library building are being incorporated into the design to provide a facility that can benefit the whole community. A grade II listed war memorial will be retained and become a prominent feature at the front of the site.
Simon Lander said "we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council on this interesting and challenging project. ChandlerKBS is already working in partnership with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council project managing the design and construction of the new Primary School at Penrhiwfer which is due for completion in August 2011, having recently successfully collaborated on the Church Village Bypass".
