Expert team appointed to help create city centre public hub

​​​​​​​A team of leading property professionals is to help Swansea Council create a community hub in an existing city centre building.


They are experts in design, architecture, engineering, project and cost management.

The team will help the council transform the former BHS and What! building, in Oxford Street, into a multi-purpose venue offering a range of key public services.

This will secure jobs in the city centre, increase footfall for nearby businesses and give long-term use to a prominent building. It will help the city tackle the economic shock of the pandemic.

Led by project and cost management specialists Coreus Group, the community hub team includes architects Austin Smith Lord, mechanical and electrical engineers SDS, structural engineers Jubb and principal designer PHD Property Advisory.

Council leader Rob Stewart said: "Our multi-disciplinary design team will work with council officers on this major project. They are a high-calibre team with great experience in developing top quality public spaces.

"We want to give residents easier access to services than ever before, avoid the cost of building a new structure, reduce overheads and help revitalise the city centre that's already undergoing a £1bn regeneration."
