Comcen were awarded the contract to supply twenty four interactive LCD panels and sixty eight Smart Interactive AiO Boards in the spring of 2012. A combination of competitive pricing, product knwledge and outstanding service were all features, in the decision. Working closely with both staff at Coleg Morgannwg and the contractor, Comcen were able to provide an installation time-frame which suited all parties. The work was completed on time and with budget before the start of the new term in September. Subsequent to the sign off, Comcen supplied on-site training for the Coleg Morgannwg support engineers.
The new building has been designed to meet the needs of the college’s changing and diverse curriculum and to provide staff and over 3,000 students with up to date, modern facilities.
