Admiral Insurance Swansea

The Problem
Our clients needed to expand their training facilities and improve the staff canteen at their Swansea call centre.

They already occupied several floors in a tower block in central Swansea and took the opportunity to take another floor when it became available.

The Solution
We planned the layout in conjunction with the facilities manager and nominated furniture suppliers to provide a reception area, training rooms, conference room and canteen facility with dining room, servery and kitchen.
The plans were submitted and approved by the landlord and local authority building control.

The work involved completely stripping out the floor including partitions, suspended ceilings, floor coverings and all services, leaving a shell with only central lift/staircase core and toilets.The training area fit-out included new suspended ceilings, fire rated acoustically insulated stud partitions incorporating full height double glazed panels, a folding acoustic partition to create a double size training room when required, lighting, power and data, heavy contract quality carpet tile floor covering, decoration and window blinds.

The catering section was fitted out to meet all necessary Public Health and Safety standards including Whiterock hygienic suspended ceiling and wall lining, design, supply and installation of stainless steel canopy, ventilation and supply air system, all catering equipment, servery counters and equipment, dining room furniture, safety flooring in the kitchen and servery. Rubber flooring was installed in the dining room to reduce the usual canteen hard floor ‘clatter’.
The main computer room on a lower floor was also extended at the same time to accommodate additional equipment required and the data network was linked to the computer room.
