A CAPITAL firm has been unveiled as the preferred bidder for a new £40 million arts centre at Bangor University in Wales.

Miller Construction will join a team of firms already working on the Pontio project, which is due to open in spring 2014.

Construction is expected to begin on the site in May.

The project will house a 500-seat theatre, a smaller studio theatre, cinema, restaurant, bars, a new students’ union building and teaching spaces.
