Project Overview

St David's Shopping Centre is one of the principal shopping centres in the city centre of Cardiff and was developed on the site of the original St David's Shopping Centre and also links with ‘The Hayes’, one of Cardiff’s most scenic and historic shopping streets. The redevelopment of St David’s has created one of the largest shopping centres in the country that represents nearly 40% of the total retail floor space in the city – equivalent to 30 football pitches of shopping!

Ultimately the new shopping centre has helped to elevate Cardiff into a world-class shopping destination and has helped to establish Cardiff as the home of fashion in Wales.

Trinity Experience

The original St David’s Centre was integrated with an extensive new development culminating in 1.4mill sq ft of retailing space. Due to the size of the site, an experienced Trinity engineer spends extensive time per week on site carrying out the planned maintenance programme and fault finding across all systems listed. The 13 high-tech networked fire alarm panels,15 gas panels & the PA/VA systems are fully interfaced through an extensive colour-graphic head-end, allowing detailed 24/7 monitoring across the site.
