Project Summary

Howard Gardens, Cardiff has seen the introduction of a 671-bedroom complex at the former Cardiff Metropolitan University. The northern building contains 2,3, 4, and 6-bed apartments to house the growing demand for student accommodation in the area.


The completion on-site has seen BTS deliver yet another amazing facade solution. The facility has been designed and developed to meet high standards of sustainability furthermore reducing ongoing operational running costs. In addition, with it being in the central location within easy walking distance of most of the university buildings within the city. This then encourages an environmentally friendly building solution, with a reduction in Co2 emissions.


With Cardiff housing 4 higher education institutions the growing need for additional student housing has increased the demand. Replacing a bowling green this modern addition will start to house students in January 2021.
