The centre is the largest facility of its kind in Wales and is predicted to bring £70 million a year to the local city region economy.

Dudley’s work at the site started in November 2017 with the ICC Wales scheduled to open in June 2019 - it received its official opening in September 2019.


Commenting on the new contract, Dudley’s MD Colin Shorney said: “In the preceding 36-months we had worked on a number of landmark projects in South Wales, including the BBC Cymru Wales HQ, CUBRIC and Friars Walk, so we couldn't wait to add the ICC to our portfolio.”
