Description
Caernarfonshire Technical College opened on the 18th September 1957, designed by the county architect H Williams to replace the Bangor Technical Institute (built 1947) on Deiniol Road. The site was expanded in 1969 and a sports hall was added in 1972.

The Ffriddoedd Road frontage consists of a three storey block to the right, with alternating horizontal bands of green opaque glass and clear glazing in a green metal framework delineating each storey. To the left sit the single-storey, barrel-vaulted workshops, the undulating waved roof both providing extra lighting for the workshops below, and echoing the form of the mountains visible in the distance behind. The entrance wing, which sits at 90 degrees to the main block, is furnished with a slate mural depicting the tools of the Technical College.
