Project Description :

The development of the Avana Bakery site in the Grangetown area of Cardiff, for UNITE Group Plc, represented the first modular constructed build for UNITE in Wales. The use of modules was borne out of extremely onerous site and programme constraints and a desire to minimise disruption to the surrounding environment of this City centre location, usually caused by in-situ construction.


The development consists of 334 en-suite study bedrooms with communal kitchen / lounge facilities arranged within a 0.34 hectare site.


Regional Spokesperson for Unite Mr James Childs commented that 'Rio Architects professionalism, passion for design and understanding of local issues has proven invaluable in achieving accommodation on a number of contentious and challenging sites


The project was completed in 2006.
