Freshwater Project

Freshwater,Cardiff Gate Business Park,Cardiff

Project value

£250,000 | Time scale: Five months

The client

Freshwater is an integrated communications consultancy with offices across the UK.

The design brief

To fit out 8,000 sq ft of office space for Freshwater’s new headquarters at the Cardiff Gate Business Park.

Project delivery

The Bbi team carried out a complete restructure and fit out of the company’s new office space, including video DVD editing and production facilities, a graphic design studio, training and meeting rooms and a library. The office fit out also included establishing facilities for Freshwater Wales’s 45 staff including the Yum Yum Café kitchen, a dedicated sitting room and informal meeting rooms. The piece de resistance was the curved media wall that greets visitors on arrival in reception. Produced in conjunction with the Freshwater in-house design team, the wall features modern, colourful graphics and quotes about communication from famous writers from Shakespeare to Oscar Wilde. Carl Williams of Bbi said: “The Freshwater offices are a great example of what can be done with a bit of imagination and an injection of fun. “In terms of office design, we’ve moved a long way from simply being satisfied with magnolia walls and a beech desk. Forward-thinking companies are currently creating exciting working environments that offer something a little bit different. “But this approach is not just about frivolity – it can actually help the bottom line. An office with wow-factor, like Freshwater UKs new headquarters, can help increase staff motivation and reduce absenteeism, as well as create a powerful first impression for clients. The investment will definitely reap rewards.”
