CARDIFF | Projects & Construction

Cardiff

Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, one of the 4 countries that comprise the United Kingdom.

It's an architecturally diverse city, well known for it's stadium, civic centre, castle and historic shopping arcades. Many of the city's buildings are built from distinctive Welsh stone and slate but there is also a lot of architectural contrast and quality befitting its capital city status.

Population: 341,000 Metro area 1,097,000 (2010)
