The design brief To convert a former office space into a new laboratory with office facilities for Welsh Water’s water testing services.

Project delivery

Bbi had its work cut out for them with this task as the project, which would normally take in the region of six months, had to be completed in just 16 weeks. It was challenged to create a building that served two purposes – three quarters was given over to technical laboratories for water testing with the last quarter housing Dwˆr Cymru Welsh Water’s administrative and office facilities. Bbi worked closely with InterFocus to ensure that the specialist conditions needed to install laboratory conditions were met. As time was an important factor, major decisions such as the layout of corridors, and location of labs and offices, had to be taken around the internal structural work taking place. Carl Williams from Bbi said: “This was a complex brief. Not only did we have to rebuild the entire inside of the building, furnish it, and ensure it was suitable to meet laboratory conditions, we had to complete it within a very strict deadline. “Is was an excellent example of partnership working and as a result came in on time and on budget.”
