£140,000 | Six months

The design brief

To refurbish the reception area in the prestigious One Kingsway building in the centre of Cardiff, creating an uplifting environment for employees and visitors.

Project delivery

This project was logistically complex, requiring specialist knowledge and equipment to complete the carefully coordinated strip out of the existing reception and atrium area. In addition to a stylish and colourful reception desk, decorated in orange and brown with sculptured, polished plaster panels and vending desk, Bbi fitted a new ceiling and lighting system.

The problem of cold air circulating around the open plan reception area was overcome by installing two large curtain heaters and to cause as little disruption as possible, all work was carried out overnight or at the weekend.

Steve Lesbirel from Bbi said: “Quality and meticulous design was of the upmost importance here. We therefore used the very best materials to complete the high quality refurbishment, providing a stylish, modern reception area that can also be used as an informal meeting space.

“Carrying out the work out of hours was an added challenge, but one that we overcame, completing the project on time and within budget.”
