Arup's designers will describe the Central Square project - a five-hectare city-centre development opposite Cardiff’s main rail station.

Comprised of six new buildings, Central Square represents a new commercial-led gateway for the capital city of Wales. Once complete, it will provide contemporary and flexible workspace for approximately 10,000 people.

Arup has made a significant contribution to the development of Central Square, working on multiple aspects of the design of all five of the six buildings designed to date, including serving as primary engineering designer for Rightacres on the shell and core of the new BBC building and a major new office for UK tax authority, HMRC.

Speakers

Matthew Hartley, Tom Firth and Rob Powell are Chartered Senior Structural Engineers each leading multi-disciplinary teams in Arup’s Cardiff Office.

Joining Arup as a graduate in 2008 Matthew has since led and contributed to many of the new generation of landmark offices built and under construction across Cardiff including 2 Central Square.

In his 12 years working for Arup after joining as a graduate, Tom has spent time working in Hong Kong and Seattle, on the Kai Tak sports centre and the refurbishment of the Seattle space needle. Tom led the structural design of the new BBC headquarters in Central Square.

Much of Rob’s project experience is on prestigious developments in London and Manchester. He has drawn on that experience closer to home as multi-disciplinary lead for the new HMRC office building at Cardiff Central Square.
